Fort Pierre Bicentennial Farmers’ Market – Tuesday, August 22 – 5pm-until at least 7pm

We’re ready to go this week, after watching a pretty cool solar eclipse today. For our “Back to School” Tuesday night market, the Stanley County Gold Program is serving walking tacos as a fundraising dinner. Plus, American Bank and Trust is having a cupcake walk!!

Start your stroll with fresh squeezed lemonade from Sunshine Coffee. Man, that stuff is super refreshing…just like drinking summer!

Grady & Rayya will be back with their yummy sweet corn. All the funds they raise are going toward their college funds. Grady loves a good chat, so stop down and help these young entrepreneurs!

Need a dish to take care of a few vegetables? Try this Grilled Vegetable Panzanella Salad recipe from B&G Produce. It is amazing!! Pick up most of these items Tuesday night. Also, head lettuce is back at B&G Produce!

Venner Farm is featuring Pecan Sandies (one of my favorite cookies!!!) this week. You better beat me to them.

BLC Ranch is back this week. I have been using one of their dryer balls for two weeks and absolutely love it! Stop by and give it a try.

Beverly has her fun Halloween décor this week. Time to get in the spirit!

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop all the vendors and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.
