Join us on Thursday evenings from 4:30 – 7PM at the Ballard Plaza Parking Lot in Huxley for a fantastic Farmer’s Market! This is our 2nd year hosting this event, and we are in the growth stage! We are in need of more community and vendor support. Local churches, student groups, citizens, and businesses are all welcome to participate to create a wonderful event that young and old alike can enjoy.
We are currently seeking vendors, entertainment, and volunteers. Would you consider getting a group together to man a table, so you aren’t on your own? We need volunteers to help just one week, or one month.
Any homemade or home grown items are eligible for the market! For official rules, please see the application. If you have ANY questions, please contact Deanna Faubus email@example.com or Shelly Bernholtz firstname.lastname@example.org.
