The Concho Valley Farmers Market’s thrice-weekly produce sales begin at 7 a.m. Saturday, with a hardy spread of vegetables.
The vendors, who come from a 75-mile radius around San Angelo, will be offering locally grown and seasonal fruits, vegetables and plants from 7 a.m. until they sell out (typically by noon) every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The farmers market gathers under the pavilion at 609 S. Oakes St. across from Fort Concho.
Margie Jackson, president of the Concho Valley Farmers Market, said the inventory consist of items such as greens (including spinach, lettuces and collards), beets, carrots, asparagus, radishes, Swiss chards (a type of beet), along with lots of indoor and outdoor house plants, pecans, goat cheese, farm-fresh eggs, packaged beef and fresh herbs such as basil, thyme, cilantro, parsley and rosemary.
The farmers market typically charges customers $1 for a bundle or a bowl of produce.
Interested farmers can join the market for $15 or $20, which allows them to set up a stand for $5 or $10 at each sale. For more information, contact Jackson at 325-245-3338.
