Call the Extension Service at the Courthouse.  Last year they moved it to Buckhorn.  Not sure if they are having it this year or not.  It's too bad because I think if a market was well run and publicized in the area it would thrive.  Need to be closer to the MO Ave corridor though to get the post traffic.

Yeah, Somebody who has a business in that area should let them have a corner of their parking lot for the farmers market.  I know a great place, think Luther Thomas owns it.  The lot where the donut shop used to be.  Across from the convenience store on Missouri Ave.  By Wells Fargo.  That would be a great spot.

The only problem would be taking from that little produce store across the road.

it's down the road a bit and personally I don't buy things from them because it is not fresh looking and the store is a mess.

I was thinking about selling at the one in Camdenton because I was afraid that the one in Buckhorn was it. Then someone told me there was one at the middle school parking lot.  I hope the one in Buckhorn isn't it.  I really wish there was one in St. Robert or Waynesville.  I'm growing organic produce this year and I want to try to sell it where there is some customer base.  If Buckhorn is it, I might as well sell it from the end of my driveway.  I don't know, has anyone been to the one in Buckhorn?  Maybe I'm all wrong about it but who is going to see you there?  And as far as taking business from a store, the one in Buckhorn lets the farmers set up in their parking lot so it may bring in more business.

Buckhorn is it.  Where do you live it might be profitable to sell from your driveway if you advertise it.

There is one in the middle school parking lot, but from my experience the stuff is outrageously priced. I go to the one in Springfield frequently and it's amazing!!!!

Well I live at the end of W highway (Turkey Ridge) so I don't think I will be setting up there. But my mother lives on Hwy A (Richland) and has all of the Lake traffic.  I actually thought about setting up there but I don't want to get stuck w/ a bunch of produce that didn't sell since it is not exactly cheap to grow it this way.  Also, I think I might be able to get better prices if I was inside city limits.

bliss, I'm curious...do you remember how much they charge for stuff?  I'm growing an organic and gourmet type garden.  Things not usually found in stores. Such as purple and orange cauliflower, asparagus beans, purple beans, several types of fingerling potatoes, different types of squash, huge assortment of peppers and too much more to type. 
My produce will be slightly higher than that found in stores.  My produce is grown with love and hard work and picked by hand the day it is sold and gown w/o the use of dangerous chemicals.  The stuff at the store has been harvested by a machine and moved with bobcats and harvested probably a week before it arrives at the store states away.  Plus...mine has taste! :)

I didn't think the prices were too high there just wasn't enough selection to make it worth my time to stop there.

Yup, selection was my concern, I'm growing so much stuff. I was worried that everyone might just have run of the mill stuff. Tomatoes squash and cukes and people wouldn't care to stop.  I don't want to be stuck in the middle of that but I don't want to drive really far either but I still have to make some kind of profit.

The stuff that was there was simple tomatoes and cucumbers, nothing to write home about KWIM?  I grow those in my own garden.  I usually go to the farmers market to find things like you mentioned. :-)  Fresh green beans cause I don't have the ability to grow them. haha

If I were you I would go to Luther Thomas Ent office.  It is located in the little mini mall where Lepards used to be, by cable tv.  Ask them if they would let you set up there to sell you stuff.  All they can say is no.  Not there by their office but across the street where the donut store used to be.  Another good place would be on the lot where Daisy's used to be.  Anybody know who owns that.

I think that grassy area in front of Executive Reality and Whiskeys would be a good area to sell produce.

There is a farmer's market at the fairgrounds in Rolla - I don't know much about it but may be worth checking into. The Extension Center has the Master Gardeners group, I would call and check with them.

If you want a busy Farmer's Market check out Rolla, Lebanon or Camdenton.  The market manager here has never done anything to promote it or get new vendors.  2 years ago when we checked it out it took 2 weeks + just to get a return call.  We would love a good local market for our soaps and herbs.
 
At my old farm we used to drive an hour to sell at a farmer's mkt.

That is a good idea igahmah, I might do that.  I would really like to find other people who would like to sell with me just to bring in more people and offer more selection.  I actually wondered about the parking lot of the community center.  I wonder if that would be a possiblity for an actual Sat. farmers market.  I think it is a central location it wouldn't be too far for anyone to drive.  Buckhorn is to far.  I was thinking about trying to get a better one up and running. I teach school so I have my summers free.  I just didn't know what was around here.  I tried the one at Camdenton (that is where I teach) and I have not got a response yet and it has been more than 2 weeks.  I will be selling free-range farm eggs as well.

I am not sure but H & L in Crocker may have at 1 time or another bought and resold local produce.. watermelons, tomatoes ect.  not 100% but i kind of remember them doing that. they might be interested in some "gourmet" style produce if they could turn  a profit from it... call down there and ask for Joe, he would be able to tell you yes or no.  just a thought if you have a over abundance

A lot of restaurants will purchase produce also. Sometimes the stores and restaurants want price cuts.  I can still sell the same stuff to folks for the price I want and I get to meet new people.

Hit the wrong button lol.  Here is the proper post.

Bath and body products - soaps, lotions, scrubs bath fizzies.
Small soy candles and tarts
 
I have finally got my herbs going down here.  Used to have 1 1/4 acres of garden beds at my old farm in Bates County but went to work fulltime when I moved down here and that has been my downfall.
 
If you ever have a spare swarm I have an empty hive in need of occupants lol
