Eureka Farmers Market opens August 13
EUREKA, Nev. — University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Eureka office, in partnership with Eureka County, will sponsor the Eureka Farmers Market 4 — 6 p.m. every Thursday from Aug. 13 to Oct. 1 in front of the Senior Center on Gold Street just off Main Street.
At the kick-off event on Aug. 13, there will be complimentary homemade ice cream; kids’ face painting, music provided by a local DJ and a free raffle with prizes supplied by market vendors and sponsors. Raffle winners will be announced at the market. An ethnic cooking demonstration is planned from 4:00 —4:45 p.m.
The Eureka Farmers Market provides consumers an opportunity to purchase quality produce from local gardeners and area farmers.
Along with fresh produce, locally produced homemade jams and jellies, home-baked sweets and treats, handmade arts and crafts and other miscellaneous merchandise will also be available. New vendors, returning vendors and buyers are welcome to participate.
The Senior Farmers Market Program also offers coupon booklets valued at $30 to qualified seniors 60 years or older. Seniors can only use the coupons to purchase fresh, nutritious and unprepared fruits, vegetables and herbs.
In addition to providing a place to buy and sell fresh, healthy, local produce, the farmers market is a place to meet and interact with friends and neighbors in the community.
Space will be provided free of charge to vendors on a first-come, first-served basis. If vendors have access to their own tables it is highly recommended they bring them. The Eureka Farmers Market Rules and Vendor Applications may be obtained from the Eureka Cooperative Extension Office, 701 S. Main St., Eureka.
