Farmer’s Market opens Tuesday morning


The Concho Valley Farmers Market’s three-times-per-week produce sales begin tomorrow at 7 a.m. Tuesday, May 8, with a spread of hardy winter vegetables.

The vendors, who come from a 75-mile radius around San Angelo, will be selling locally grown seasonal fruits, vegetables and plants from 7 a.m. until they sell out (typically by noon) each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday thereafter. The farmers market gathers under the pavilion at 609 S. Oakes St. across from Fort Concho.

Initially the selection will include greens (including spinach, lettuces and collards), green and purple onions, beets, carrots, asparagus, radishes, Swiss chards (a type of beet), zucchini and squash, along with indoor and outdoor plants, pecans, goat cheese, farm-fresh eggs, coffee, and fresh herbs such as basil, thyme, cilantro, parsley and rosemary. 

“It’s been a great year so far for veggies,” reported Margie Jackson, president of the Concho Valley Farmers Market.

The farmers market typically charges customers $1 for a bundle or a bowl of produce.

Interested farmers can join the market for $15 or $20, which allows them to set up a stand for $5 or $10 at each sale.

The market will hold its sales until the first fall freeze. A grand opening sale and celebration will be scheduled in the coming weeks. 

For more information, contact Jackson at 325-245-3338.
