KC Organics and Natural Market

Peter of the KC Organics and Natural Market “The Farmer’s Market in a Park” passed this on to me and I've been meaning to get it posted on the blog. This market has lots going on and some very fun vendors. It's great to see our Missouri markets thriving and growing each year.
From Peter Stauffacher:
It's that most wonderful time of year again! Oh, the Joy's of Spring and all of the new life! It has been a slow and late start to Spring this year, but we are still opening at our usual First Saturday of May. Things are coming together despite the slow start, and it looks like the fruit is surviving some near freezes.

There should be some early greens and things. And we will even have some blueberries and other fruit this Saturday! There will be the regular items that are less weather affected and lots of plants, too. The prospects look great this year for increases in the amount and variety of produce. We have some new vendors who will be joining us as the season progresses, and the regular farmers have increased their production substantially!

We will hope to see you this Saturday (even if it rains a bit- and we especially thank the die-hards for coming out on such days!). We also thank you for spreading the word and helping us continue to grow into SKC's special organic market. For new folks we have a map for you with easy directions at our website- www.kcorganics.com. Thank you for your steadfast support, and we hope to see ya soon!

I am a loyal fan of this Organic Market. Last year there was a family selling worm castings and I would like to contact them to purchase these castings for my lawn. Please send them my email address or provide me with their website or email. Thank you so much. I am Andrea Jones and my email is ajones22@kc.rr.com.
