We have shopped at one-in old down town Branson--it was in a parking lot not far from the post office!
That was before we moved to here------- & it was late Spring last year I'm pretty sure!

Hey flips, was it a rather large market or kind of small not so much to buy kind of gathering? If you have been to the one in Springfield, how does that compare? They have one in the battlefield mall parking lot and man, it is a pretty good one!

Need a bit of a translation here. By 'farmer's market' is this a food/produce venue only, or more of a 'people buy tables and sell whatever they want' kind of market?

Farmer's market is usually food & produce only!!!!!!!

I'm sorry I have not been to the Farmer's market in Springfield--- YET!!!!!!!!

I would say this one was probably a lot smaller--------

Our Farmers Market in Historic Downtown Branson is not very large....yet! I can't compare to the one in Springfield as I've never been to that one. Last year was the first year that the farmers market came to be in existance because of the hard work that the downtwon merchants, especially Dave and Kim King from Branson Bill's Emporium, put into creating one.

In the early spring, when there is little to harvest, there are vendors with bedding and vegetable plants along with some homebaked products. Later in the year there is plenty of produce and other farmers market items. All of the produce has to be locally grown. We do allow 10% of the market to be handcrafted items that are juried as to be deemed locally handcrafted.

If you know of anyone that would be interested in becoming a vendor, please have them contact Dave King at the info that was posted above. It is very inexpensive to set up at the market and we would love to see our market grow!

Also, if you come to shop our farmers market, be sure to get there early as most of the vendors sell out!!
