First-ever Community Farmer's Market coming to West Meridian

May 29, 2019

The first-ever West Meridian Community Farmer's Market is happening next week on June 6th at the Multi-County Service Agency. Ward 4 Councilwoman Kim Houston says this project has been in planning stages for some time and is a way to give back to farmers and bring healthy produce to those in the west side of town. All produce will come from local farmers, who will provide seasonal foods such as corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash.

After this grand opening, the market will continue on the first and third Thursdays of June, July, and August. "Of course you can go to the grocery store and things of that nature, but, again, helping the whole aspect of the community, in that the local farmers will benefit from this, the community will benefit from it, because it's truly locally grown fruits and vegetables, you know, things of that nature. So, we're excited,” said Houston. The market will all take place in the evenings from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
