The Webb City Farmers Market hosts its annual Arts in the Park under the pavilion at the Main Street entrance to King Jack Park. And this year many came out to the park to take advantage of the good weather, food and crafts.
Headlining the event this year was Wildfire, Emmy® Award winning recording artists and conservationists Jan & George Syrigos. The group took children and families on a musical adventure exploring wildlife, habitats, and natural history. Another group, The Missouri Millstone Trio was also on hand for the event with live Bluegrass under the pavilion.
In addition to normal farm produce and products always at the market, many local artists were on hand to sell their creations. Even the Wildcat Glades Conservation & Audubon Center and Spiva Center for the Arts were on hand with activity tables for the kids. One table event boasted Veggie Art, where kids turned pepper and other veggies into cars, bugs, aliens and whatever else their imagination came up with.
The Webb City Farmers Market is a producer-only market, which means that customers buy produce directly from the grower, meat from the rancher, and bread from the baker. The market is open rain or shine under the pavilion at the Main Street entrance to King Jack Park. The market is open Tuesday and Friday from 11 to 2 and Saturday from 9 to noon. Sales begin when the bell rings. The market accepts SNAP (food stamps), debit and credit cards. For information, call 417 483-8139.
