2015 MT. VERNON FARMERS MARKET OPENS JUNE 9TH
The Mt. Vernon Farmers Market will be open again this summer in the same location as last year, next to the McDonald's Restaurant on Fourth Street in Mt. Vernon. It will be open every Tuesday from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. throughout the summer, beginning on June 9th and continuing until at least through the last Tuesday in August, weather permitting. "The Mt. Vernon Farmers Market looks forward to serving even more customers this summer" said Jon Neufelder, Purdue Extension Educator and Market Master for the Mt. Vernon Farmers Market. "Our vendors are all local producers and take great pride in providing the freshest and highest quality fruits and vegetables for customers to enjoy."
This will be the seventh year for the Farmers Market in Mt. Vernon and the fifth year for the location next to McDonald's in Mt. Vernon. "We really appreciate the owners of McDonalds allowing us to use their employee parking lot for our Farmers Market," says Neufelder. "It provides us with great visibility and access for customers."
The Wadesville Farmers Market will also continue this summer, open every Thursday afternoon from 3-6 throughout the summer. It will open for business on Thursday, June 11th, directly across from Subway Restaurant on Highway 66 in Wadesville.
The Posey County Farm Bureau is the major supporter of both Farmers Markets, assisting with market insurance and other expenses and is very supportive of the local Farmers Markets.
