Farmers' Markets Are Everywhere!

Camdenton Farmers' MarketThis time of year is the perfect time for enjoying some nice fresh fruits and vegetables, planting those brightly colored flowers in your yard, and sitting on the porch with family while enjoying some homemade bread. These are all different things you can find at the farmers' market in Camdenton--everything from bedding plants to local produce to baked goods. This story, from the Lake Sun Leader, shared everything that the Camdenton Farmers' Market has to offer.

Farm Fresh Goodness Is Just a Short Drive Away

The weather is great and it's time to get out and explore.

While everyone knows the lake area has plenty to offer, those who spend all their time on the water and don't take time to check out what else is going on will miss out on a spring, summer and fall harvests of the ripest local produce, fruits and vegetables, bedding plants, and on a good day, baked goods still warm from the oven.

If fresh brown eggs are a favorite, check out Nolt's Country Market on Business Highway 54/52 in Eldon. The market is open year-round from from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday. The market carries a large selection of bulk items, such as flour, sugar, spices and various baking mixes, jam and jellies and Mennonite candy.

During the spring, summer and fall, there's an open-air market selling whatever is in season. Spring bedding plants and handcrafted wood outdoor furniture are on display now.

Later in the season and throughout the summer and fall, the market features produce and baked goods.

Since 1985, a group of local farmers have been holding a market at the Camdenton Square. Vendors set up at 7 a.m. every Saturday in front of the Camden County Courthouse.
