For those interested in buying fresh produce directly from local farmers and vendors the Farmer’s market located on Sycamore and Second Street can provide an alternative than the grocery store.
The Farmer’s Market is open very Friday from 7:00 AM to 2:30PM.
Food prices around the world are on the rise, hitting consumers in their pocket books.
But some local vendors say they may have an answer. The Farmer's Market.
Open for business and it's not just produce for sale at Evansville's Farmers Market along Sycamore and Second Street.
This is the place to find local farmers like Roger Huff trying to make a few extra bucks.
Huff says his top sellers are rhubarb and tomatoes. He sold about 30-pounds of rhubarb.
"I like the farmers market, all home grown stuff makes it nice, might as well support local people instead of who know where" Dave and Pat Eager's say they have been coming to Evansville's Farmers Markets for years.
They say for them it's not as much about saving a few pennies as it is helping out local farmers.
Rain or shine, fresh produce, flowers, herbs and baked goods will be sold every Friday from 7:00 until 2:30 through the end of September.
