farmers market

HANNIBAL, Mo. — Central Park Farmers Market will begin its season on Saturday, April 27. Hours will be 7:30 a.m. to noon every Saturday through Oct. 26. Starting in mid-June, the market will be open Tuesdays from 3-7 p.m.

Several of the vendors are eligible to take SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits for payment through a program with Douglass Community Services.

Hannibal Parks and Recreation will provide wifi in the park during Farmers Market, and Yoga in the Park will begin May 4 at 9 a.m.

In a press release, market manager Steve Huse said, “As we open our Hannibal Central Park Farmers Market for our 2024 season, I would like to personally invite everyone to come down on Saturday mornings and enjoy our relaxing atmosphere. This season we are adding some new features and improving on our existing ones. I sure hope to see all your smiling faces this season.”

Located in the heart of Hannibal in the city’s oldest park, the market plays a vital role as a community gathering place. The market offers consumers healthy, yet affordable, alternatives to the typical supermarket experience. Farmers markets have fruits and vegetables at the peak of the growing season. This means produce is at its freshest and tastes the best.

About 30 vendors participate in the Farmers Market each week. Items available last year were tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, kale, onions, cabbage, spinach, potatoes, carrots, zucchini, peppers, yellow squash, beets, watermelon, hot peppers, mushrooms, sweet corn, green beans, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, honeydew melons, cherries, strawberries, cantaloupe, apples, blueberries, blackberries, baked goods, goat’s milk soap, coffee, flowers, herbs, jam, jelly and bread.
