Farmers market to open May 26 in Peabody

The 2012 Doyle Valley Farmers Market season will begin at 8 a.m. May 26 in hopes of enticing Peabody residents and Memorial Day visitors to shop for fresh garden produce. The market will be open until noon in Santa Fe park downtown.

This is the 14th year for the market, and with the early spring, organizers and vendors are looking forward to a good crop of produce from the very first session.

“Traditionally, the market vendors carry a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, baked goods, honey, jams, plants, homemade soaps and other goodies,” group president Debbie McSweeney said. “We don’t really know what to expect with the early spring, but we hope everyone will come and check us out every week. It could be a banner year!”

McSweeney also said that new vendors always are welcome.

“The only requirement is that all items for sale must be Kansas grown or made,” she said.

Doyle Valley Farmers Market will be in operation each week from Memorial Day to Labor Day. For more information, contact McSweeney at (620) 983-9234.
