The Seymour Farmer’s Market will start its 20th season providing the community with locally grown fresh produce, meat, eggs, honey, herbs and baked goods this Saturday.
A limited number of crafters will provide value added agricultural products such as goat milk lotion, soaps and alpaca products. In addition there will be quilts and kitchen towels, wreaths, woodwork, metal craft and artwork. A blacksmith will demonstrate his craft on some Saturdays.
All products are produced by the vendors who can answer questions about how things were grown or made. Each week, the farmer’s market also has a program, usually from 9 – 11 a.m. The opening day will feature a scavenger hunt for kids and information on summer programs at the library. Other Saturdays in June will include a check of pressure canner lids on June 8, free cupcake decorating by children for their Dads on June 15, the new seed library with free sunflower seeds and plants on June 22 and a cooking demonstration with free samples on June 29.
The Seymour Farmer’s Market is located in the Seymour First Baptist Church parking lot, located at 11621 Chapman Highway, and lasts from 8 a.m. – noon.
