First Kirksville Farmer's Market of the year is this Saturday

The Kirksville Kiwanis Club will start their 36th annual Farmer's Market this Saturday.

A long time summer tradition is once again returning to Kirksville.

Beginning this Saturday, May 4, the Kirksville Kiwanis Club will be having their Farmer's Market during the summer months for the 36th year in a row.

People can come out to the Downtown Kirksville Square as area producers, growers, and vendors will be selling fresh produce and crafts.

For anyone who has never attended the Farmer's Market before, Kiwanis members say that you can expect a lot of fun.

"It's a great time. It's runs from 7 a.m. To 12 noon. It's plenty of time to come out and enjoy yourself, talk to the producers and growers about what they're selling, and see your neighbors, friends, and community members. So it's always a good time," said Kirksville Kiwanis Club President Ashley Young.

The Farmer's Market will run every Saturday through the end of October.

The Kirksville Kiwanis Farmer's market has been the longest running community project in the city. All the proceeds the club makes from the market goes to fund scholarships for area students.
