There will be a Vendors Meeting for anyone interested in participating in the Central Park Farmers Market 6:30 p.m. March 10 at Admiral Coontz Recreation Center.
Steve Huse, market manager, said plans for the upcoming season will be discussed. Central Park Farmers Market Opening Day will be April 24 and will be every 7:30 a.m. to noon Saturday through Oct. 30. Tuesday evening dates will be added through the summer.
“Anyone who has been a past vendor or is interested in being a vendor is welcome to attend,” Huse said. “We will have our local health inspector and scale inspector in attendance so bring your scales and questions.”
Huse said the rules and regulations will be outlined and there will be an open forum for questions and ideas.
Located in the heart of Hannibal, in the city’s oldest park, the market plays a vital role as a community gathering place that offers the very best products from the area. The market offers consumers healthy, yet affordable, alternatives to the typical supermarket experience.
