The Tales of a Growing Farmers Market

Background Info: The Rogers Farmers markets is still growing. After three years the market has expanded to hold 23 vendors along with a music booth and a community booth. Member of MN grown, MFMA, and Local Harvest- the Rogers Farmers Market is taking all of the correct steps to a bright future.

"Whew, this season has been one of the worst yet." exclaimed a vegetable vendor of the Rogers Farmers Market. "Our fields have been flooded, the cold weather has delayed growth- we just have no produce to bring to the market."

This is an all to common explaination heard from the produce vendors at the Rogers Farmers Market earlier this market season. The market opened its doors June 8th with only two out of the eight vegetable and fruit vendors actually attending the first day.

On June 21st, the market was a different sight- all of the produce vendors came with overflowing tables of produce!

Although the weather has not been cooperating- with two rain outs and cold temperatures, the market on June 29th is expected to be beautiful.
