Produce in the Park kicks off the 2021 farmers market season on June 3. The market is excited to have live music, prepared foods, and community groups at the park in 2021. Produce in the Park is a community-oriented farmers market held every Thursday evening (4:30-6:30 PM) from June 3 through September 30 in the Atlantic City Park. Shoppers at the market will find delicious fresh produce, baked goods, meats, farm fresh eggs, and a variety of crafting products such as candles, soaps, and lotions.
Produce in the Park also offers the chance to learn about community organizations, and plenty of space to relax and distance while enjoying live music and dinner in the shady city park. “Produce in the Park is a great place to chill after work on Thursdays,” commented Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bailey Smith. “Grab dinner and relax in the shade while listening to live music. Don’t forget to bring your lawn chair!”
While Produce in the Park is welcoming community organizations back to the park in 2021, safety remains a top priority. To minimize the spread of COVID-19, Produce in the Park asks customers to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets, maintain a respectful six-foot distance from others, and mask when distancing isn’t possible.
Produce in the Park 2021 summer farmers markets are sponsored by the Atlantic Community Promotion Commission, First Whitney Bank & Trust, Cass County Tourism, the Nishna Valley Family YMCA, Cass County Health System, and the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce.
Produce in the Park continues to accept vendors for the 2021 season. Both food and craft vendors are invited to join the market. Vendors can register for the entire season, or sign up for just a few weeks. More information on vending at Produce in the Park can be found at www.produceintheparkatlanticiowa.com.
