Garden Sass Market report

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

This month, the Garden Sass Farmers' Market in Cassville is offering cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, lettuce, radishes, raspberries and blueberries. Some strawberries and garden plants will also still be available.

"As the weather is finally warming up, our gardens are really taking off," said John Potter, Garden Sass Farmers' Market president. "We expect to see more vendors selling their garden favorites."

Tomatoes and blackberries should begin to ripen next month.

The Garden Sass Farmers Market, which is held on Mineral Springs Road in the Cassville City Park, is open from 7 to 11 a.m. each Tuesday and Friday. The market closes early if all vendors sell out of produce or goods.

"Again, we wish to thank the Cassville MFA for providing us with an area to use for the farmers' market," said Potter.

Vendors can sell produce or other items at the market by paying a $4 membership fee. A daily setup fee is also charged each time a vendor takes part in the market.
