Greenwood Farmers Market is Growing

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Greenwood’s first Farmers Market under the direction of Taylor Dunavin started in March 2019 where this community could visit 23 different vendors. She has received many messages about other vendors getting involved and they are excited.

A Farmers Market is more than fruits and vegetables. There are homemade soaps, jellies, crafts, baked goods, decorations and so much more.

Taylor said this community is very supportive of the Farmers Market and so are the vendors, who are supportive of each other, their crafts and food items.

Gardening has been in the beginning stage for a month now, so the produce will be showing up at the June 1 market and it will be a big celebration.

Taylor is expecting around 40 or more vendors. There will be homemade baby clothes, embroidered items, food, produce, eggs, soaps, jellies, skin care, jewelry, baked goods, home décor, personalized items, plants, quilts, pottery and more. Many people and vendors are not wanting to travel somewhere else to eat, so food vendors are coming.

Taylor and her team will be having a watermelon eating contest June 1st at 11am and there are only a couple of entries right now. They will be able to host 15 contestants with a $5 entry fee. All of the entry money will be given to the winner.

She is excited for the kids, because starting June 1, there will be yard games as well as face-painting.

When asked about the future goals of the Greenwood Farmers Market, Taylor stated she would love the market to be a destination for people all around this area, the best in over 100 miles.

Come to the Greenwood square to the Farmers Market on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 8am-1pm and support your talented friends and neighbors as well as this community.

See you at the next one on June 1.
