We are so excited to see everyone again! The Emmett Farmers Market opening day will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, June 1. Josephine Spicer will entertain us with her lovely singing voice as you do your shopping at the market.
We have several new vendors along with our many familiar, returning vendors this year promising a variety of new things at the market. It is still early in the season and most of the fruits and vegetables are not ready; however, you may find plants, tree starts, lettuce, radishes, rhubarb, strawberries, cut flowers and more. Since we can cook and bake anytime, we will have vendors selling fresh salsa, smoked ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, jams, jellies and home-baked goods, such as pies, cookies and breads. Also, we have many talented vendors who will offer for sale their unique hand-crafted items such as jewelry, crocheted items, goats milk soap products, essential oil products, planter boxes, blankets and many more creations. If you are interested in being a vendor at the Market and haven’t signed up yet, you still can, just come to the market and ask for Mary or Amy.
It is very enjoyable to be a vendor at the Emmett Farmers Market; you will meet new people, visit with friends and family, converse with your faithful customers, enjoy the fresh air, share your expertise with others, and hopefully make a little money at the same time! Rest assured that you won’t get rich, but you can have a lot of fun! And don’t forget about your kids under 16, as they can set up for free (with adult supervision) at the Emmett Farmers Market. This creates a safe learning environment of many new skills for them by being a vendor at the market. In addition, if you register before June 1, you will receive an early bird discount! Help us by filling up Blaser Park with lots of vendors this year! If at least 90 percent of what you have for sale is hand-made or home-grown and 10 percent being not hand-made or grown, then you are welcome to sell at the Market.
We are open two days a week, Wednesday afternoons from 3 – 6 p.m. and Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and it is to your advantage to set up both days consistently, but not required.
