Rolla Farmers' Market

Lloyd and Josie Blackwell of Blackwell Family Produce have sold their high quality home grown produce at the Rolla and Salem Farmers’ Markets for many years. Lloyd, who is the Market Master at the Rolla market says that running a successful market isn’t easy. “It takes a lot of work to build a market up and it takes even more work to keep the customers coming back year after year.”

The Rolla Farmers’ Market has been providing the town with a wide array of vegetables, herbs, both cut and potted flowers and baked goods. Many of the customers to the market stop by once a week during the season to see what’s new at the market and if the tomatoes are in full swing yet.

The Rolla market is located downtown across from Meeks Lumber every Tuesday from 7:00 am to Noon and at the fairgrounds on Highway 63 every Saturday. The market runs from May to October. For more information about the market, please contact the Lloyd Blackwell, Rolla Farmers’ Market Master at 573.674.2780.
