The 2015 annual Cass County Farmer's Market meeting set the agenda for this season's market with several new families in attendance. Despite the road construction we are anxiously awaiting opening day May 2nd for the market. Price for a full season booth is $40.00 or a half season is $20.00 (begins July 15th) or one day only is $7.00. If you set up each time we are open it works out to less than a dollar per day. We pay the owner of the parking lot, and for all repairs on the canopy, for city permits and signs, etc
Currently of our 16 booths we have 3 left for purchase. See market officer at market to purchase space. Once you purchase a booth the same spot is yours each week. No arguing over where to park. Work right out of the back of your car or truck. This year we have even more locally grown produce from local gardens and professional flower arrangements and much of past years crafters and gardeners. See rules for US weights and measures dept. (How to package and label produce)and Cass County health dept ( What canned goods are allowed without a certified kitchen and how to package and label baked goods)
We maintain a friendly shopping atmosphere. Cass County market rules such as no loud music, no dogs off leash, use best manners, no uncontrolled children, no cursing, keep area clean, help your neighbor when you can, no selling before market is opened, no selling of crafts you did not hand make or baked goods you did not make yourself, no reselling other baked or canned foods, sell fresh not frozen and thawed, our customers rely on it.
Remember we're the market you can drive up to, honk, and we will hand deliver your purchases without you leaving your car.
2015 Hours of Operation were: Saturdays from 8 am until produce is gone or 1 pm. Open Wednesdays from 3 pm until produce is gone or 6 pm. . Remember buying local is fresher, cheaper and supports your community. We don't grow fast food, only wholesome food we feed our families.
