Batesville’s Main Street Farmers Market will be open again this summer starting June 6th. The Market will begin at 8AM and run until noon in the Pocket Park on Main Street in Batesville with fresh vegetables, pasture raised meats, cheeses and eggs, jams and jellies, goat milk soaps and lotions, baked goods, art and crafts.
With more than double the number of farmers from last season the Main Street Farmers Market will have lots of fresh vegetables for the June 6th Market Day. Dark green leafy vegetables, turnips, broccoli, early summer squash, new potatoes, onions and green onions and maybe even tomatoes! Most of the growers at this market use only sustainable practices which means no pesticides and no artificial fertilizers. And all of the meats, cheeses and eggs sold at the market are from animals from local farms raised on grass pastures their entire lives without the use of antibiotics or hormones.This super clean food is incredibly healthy. Come to the market and talk to the farmers about how they grow their vegetables and produce their food.
Danny Dozier will play his guitar and kids will be able to play in the back area of the Pocket Park, plant their own vegetable seeds in small pots, and make leaf paintings with help from Market volunteers.
The Main Street Farmers Market will be open the first and third Saturdays in June: June 6th, and June 20th. Starting in July, the Market will open weekly offering fresh local produce and other great items every Saturday morning July, August, and September. For October and November the Market will again open the first and third Saturdays of the month. All through the 2015 season the market will schedule special events and activities on the first and third Saturdays of the month.
