Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, May 25 – 9am-noon

Well, I feel like the weather might be taking a slight turn for the better. Farmers and ranchers across the state could use a little less rain/snow and a bit more sun. I know I’m ready for a good dose of vitamin D. Even with my light skin, I say “bring it on”…that’s why I use sunscreen!

Our bees were out in force today, enjoying the sunlight and working on all the fruit tree blossoms. And, this weekend we have a great way to teach kids how important bees are in our lives. Be sure to send your kids over to the FREE Decorate Your Bumble Bee Flower Pot. Pollination station!

Remember, May is Beef Month, so stock up on all the yummy beef available at market. Maggie with One Brand Beef is offering her Burger Bag again this week as well as a Memorial Day BBQ Box. Hanisch Farms is making their season debut. Along with their delicious beef, they also have pork, chicken, and lamb. Also, be sure to ask One Brand Beef and Hanisch Farms about pre-ordering for fall delivery.

It’s not just about beef, though, because May is also egg month! Be sure to get your egg fix at B&G Produce, Cedar Creek Gardens, or Hanisch Farms.

Nancy’s Nest is making her season debut with her famous baked goods and honey! We purchased honey from Nancy throughout the winter and have really enjoyed its lovely flavor.

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