Farmers Market news

Sample local goodies

Local delicacies will be available for savoring during Taste of the Market, 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 13, at the Jackson County Farmers Market next to Bridge Park. 

An annual event, Taste of the Market features samples from vendors of dishes made from their produce, with some vendors raffling items from their displays or donating to large raffle baskets also available that day. 

The morning will also include the Market Feast, a fundraiser the market holds on the second Saturday of each month to support its day-to-day operations. Vendors volunteer to hold the feast and prepare food, with market-goers invited to partake for a donation. 

The Jackson County Farmers Market averages 35 to 38 vendors during the summer season, with as many as 18 in the winter months, when it’s held indoors. A 60-40 ratio of food to craft vendors is maintained.
