Produce in the Park kicks off its farmers market season this Thursday June 6 from 4:30 – 6:30 PM in the Atlantic City Park. Join the community for locally grown food including produce, meat and eggs, in addition to locally made baked goods and a variety of products by local crafters and artisans, activities for kids and entertainment.
New this year are games for adults, a local business prize raffle and free produce snacks for kids. On opening day Atlantic Parks and Recreation will be playing yard games with attendees. Sue’s Country Garden will be supplying free produce snacks for kids, as well as serving as guest chef providing samples and recipes of Rhubarb Upside-down Cake. The Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce will be raffling $50 in AtlantiCash or Chamber Bucks (each vendor purchase at the market enters you in the raffle). Cass County Conservation will be holding a casting contest for kids to promote upcoming fishing derbies and Healthy Cass County will have a table at the market. Jeremy Faga will provide entertainment.
Produce in the Park is continuing to accept vendor applications throughout the season and partial season or one-time options are now available for all vendors. Reduced rates are offered for vendors under 18. Contact Produce in the Park with questions.
Produce in the Park is made possible through local funding. Thanks to the generous donations from the Community Promotion Commission, the Cass County Local Food Policy Council, the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsorships from First Whitney Bank & Trust and Cass County Hospitals. The market continues to look for additional sponsors. To sponsor the market, contact Produce in the Park.
Produce in the Park is held every Thursday evening throughout the summer in the Atlantic City Park from 4:30 – 6:30 pm (note: no market will be held on the July 4 holiday).
