This week the Market will be moving downtown to Madison Street between High Street and Capitol Avenue. As many of you know, Lincoln’s campus, especially our end, gets pretty busy this time of year. There will be track meets and graduation ceremonies happening every Saturday for almost the entire month. The wonderful folks from Downtown Jefferson City offered us a home during May. Thanks to Stephanie Bell and all the wonderful merchants who helped make this possible!
The Market will run for the normal time 9:00 am to Noon. And might I suggest visiting on of the fine local restaurants for breakfast or lunch when you make the trip downtown for Market? Mmmmm….
Our regular vendors will be in full force. Expect to find pasture-raised beef, pork, chicken and eggs. Spring produce is available – green onions, lettuces, greens – Swiss chard and kale, herbs and more. There will be the normal great selection of baked goods – sweet potato pies, apple pies, cookies, breads, and freshly-milled grains turned into tasty breads. We even have healthy dog treats!
If you are looking for plants, come buy from our farmers! There will be a selection of tomatoes – heirlooms and hybrids, vegetables, herbs, and ornamentals. The Lincoln University Native Plants Program will even have plants available to attract pollinators to your garden this season.
See you this Saturday and the rest of May downtown!
