Story City Farmer’s Market debuts

Though it was a bit hot and humid, the Story City Farmer’s Market made its debut on Tuesday afternoon, July 5, south of Broad on Park Avenue, across from Kum & Go under sunny skies. The number of vendors was limited, but it is hoped that more will join as the season continues. Vendors taking part on the first night included Eat It (food truck vendor), Red Granite Farm (produce) and the Silver Spoon Bakery (baked goods). Members of Judge Story’s Theatrical Troupe also provided music for part of the evening.

Spearheaded by the Story City GCC, this is the first year of a farmer’s market in Story City in 15 years. Molly Nagel of Upper Story Studio also designed the logo. Working on vendor recruitment is Caleb Knutson and Veronica Skaar, along with assistance from the current vendors.

The Tuesday night time slot was also chosen to see if that is the most appropriate time slot. Used as a test market this first season, the GCC will evaluate the results as the season progresses, and following its conclusion this fall. The hope of the organization is that it will continue to grow and prosper, and become even bigger next season.

Plan now to stop by the Story City Farmer’s Market each and every Tuesday through October 11.
