The Farmers' Market operates every Saturday from 8:00 AM - noon, Memorial Day through Labor Day. Many items, including baked goods, plants, eggs and vegetables are available for purchase each Saturday morning. Visit the growers at 100 S. Walnut St. in Santa Fe Park.
The Doyle Valley Farmers Market was organized in March, 1999 for the purpose of providing farm fresh produce to the public, educating growers and buyers with new tastes and ideas, to enhance the community through products and incomes and to bring people together. Additionally, it is hoped the market will attract "tourists" who will shop and enjoy all of Peabody.
The growers are also planning monthly "get togethers" with experts in growing, marketing and preparing prime produce. Local production areas will be toured and visits are planned to out of town markets and gardens. A community dinner featuring local foods is planned to showcase just what is available.
The Farmers Market also includes bakers, fresh eggs, flowers and herbs and has just added a stone carver to the group.
A grant from the Kansas Rural Center has facilitated market efforts. Doyle Valley Farmers Market is located in Santa Fe Park on south Walnut Street in Peabody. Call Marilyn Jones for more information at 620-983-2815
