Local Farmers' Markets

Spring has finally arrived in the Ozarks. With the change of seasons and increase in temperatures come the arrival of gardens and fresh produce. You can find locally grown vegetables for sale at farmers' markets that are now operating in our community. In addition to vegetables, market goers also can choose from local meat, bakery goods, cheese and various handmade items.
