Payson’s Community Farmers Market opens July 4. Participants include growers with plots to acreage. The goods scheduled for sale are goat cheese, fudge, honey, jams/jellies, naturally sweetened fruit butters, eggs and baked goods. And there will be an ice cream vendor for the kids or young at heart.
The market will be at the Community Presbyterian Church and open from 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday through October.
Assistance is being sought in the following areas: farmers of food or flowers; plot gardeners that want to co-op; people looking to work or volunteer on market days; leadership in entertainment; groups interested in learning more from speakers about the project; sponsorship or donations of tables, sun canopies, certified scales or other market items; and any other way you may want to participate.
