Emporia Farmers Market to Offer CSA-Style Food Boxes.
Due to public health concerns, the Emporia Farmers Market will not hold regular markets on April 4 and 18. The market has been working with vendors to assemble a limited number of CSA-style food boxes for purchase. Each box will include a pound of locally raised ground beef from Jase Hubert, a loaf of homemade white or wheat bread from Chad at Vault Meats and Cheeses, a dozen farm-fresh eggs from a variety of vendors, a small amount of produce from Wanda Myers, Bob Karr, and Delmer Hinrichs, and a sweet treat. Other items may include local honey from Kelly’s Bees, jelly, and/or pecans. Boxes are $25 each, and pre-orders are encouraged by calling 620-343-6555 or emailing [email protected].
The market is also working with ECKAN to supply food boxes to low-income seniors; customers may purchase a box to be donated to a senior in need. Pre-orders must be received before 12pm on Friday, April 3. Pick-up will be outside of Waters Hardware from 9:00-10:30am on Saturday, April 4.
Unless otherwise directed, the market will be in operation for its first outdoor markets, Friday, May 1 in Americus from 5-6:30pm, Saturday, May 2 in Emporia from 8:30-10:30am, and Monday, May 4 in Olpe from 5-6:30pm.
