New Market in Battlefield

Battlefield, MO will be opening a new market in 2009 and is already underway with the planning stages of organizing and structuring the new market.

A public meeting will be held on Sunday, October 19th at 2:00 PM to discuss the plans for the market. I just received this information about the upcoming meeting:

Wilson’s Creek Farmers’ Market
If you’re a professional grower, a part-time gardener, or a consumer who is interested in being involved with a new farmer’s market located in Battlefield, MO. please come and join us!

City of Battlefield Community Room
5434 S Tower Dr, Battlefield, MO 65619

We are working toward starting a farmer’s market for those living in the area around Battlefield, western Nixa, Republic, Billings and Clever. The event will start in the spring of 2009. Even though that sounds a long time away, planning needs to start now. Early planting is critical for the growers who participate in farmer’s markets in this area. Many serve several markets, and they must plan early in the fall for next season’s growing capacity. If you would like to participate in helping to plan the market, we would like to have you attend. We need committee members and leaders. We are also in need of a market manager for the year.

Be part of your community and help it grow!!!!!
