It’s time once again for the 4th Annual Winter Markets and Christmas Tree Fundraiser. The Farmers Market returns to Town Park in Downtown Independence on Friday, November 27th and Saturday December 5th, from 10 am to 3 pm.
Free Kids activities include decorating cookies, making marshmallow snowmen and creating pressed flower Christmas cards.
Pick out your fresh, pesticide free Christmas tree and wreaths and enjoy shopping for local crafts and fresh, local foods. All proceeds from the tree sales benefit the Farmers Market. You can pre-order your tree at the On-line Market by going to the website, www.independencefarmersmarket.org and clicking the “On-line market” tab.
Join us again on December 5, activities include the 1st annual Chili Cookoff. Enter your best chili in the competition and win $50! Please bring your entry in a crockpot to the Market by 11 am. It’s free to enter and only $5 to buy a ticket to taste all the entries and cast your vote. It is a great way to stay warm while you wait to see the Independence Christmas Parade.
The Independence Farmers Market welcomes SNAP and offers a $25 match for all fruit and vegetable purchases.
