We need more backyard beekeepers.  The orginal reason I am growing organic is my bees. I didn't want to harm them with products in my garden. When I started researching alternatives I decided that the other stuff out there is too scary and I don't want to eat anything with that on it.

I can answer general questions as we had over 100 hives when I was growing up.  I am not up to speed on all the new diseases, mites etc though.  Feel free to holler!

The Waynesville Farmer's Market was started by the Pulaski County Master Gardeners a few years ago in an effort to encourage local growers.  There were a few growers but the Amish were the only growers that were able to keep it going and often the only vendors.  There is currently no "official" farmers market.  The reason they chose to move the market to Buckhorn was because there was shade.  The parking lot at the middle school was hot and the wind often blew their awnings over.  As of right now their plan is to continue at the Buckhorn location.   I can not speak for the Amish but I believe they would be open to another location, but shade would be an issue.

Thanks for the info. I'm confused though, I didn't think there was any shade at Buckhorn. Do they set up near the tree line?

They set up at the edge of the convenience store parking lot next to the Baptist Church.  I think they are on concrete though, not sure.

They set up in the parking lot of the shell gas station.  There is a big oak tree and that is where they set up.  The parking lot is gravel.

I believe what is needed is a volunteer to head up and organize the local Farmers Market. I believe the Extension Office is looking for that individual, but so far no volunteers. It takes a lot of time away from ones life to set up and run these types of events and unforunately there is no pay other than the thanks and gratitude of the community. Not that that isn't readily given. I believe there are multiple locations available but no organizer.

There are insurance issues too, not just a spot.  I have part of the Pulaski County Master Gardeners when they set up the market the first year.  I will call the extention and see what they have.  I know that getting enough growers in to support the market will be the biggest challenge.

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.

Ohh, I thought they had it by the new grocery store last year.  I know I saw a couple of awnings set up there last year. I didn't know they had moved it to the area by the church. That might be a little better.  The shell station is always real busy.

Okay, I think I've made up my mind to set up at the Buckhorn market if it by the shell station.  Just so you all know what I will be selling here is a short list.  Also I am growing pesticide/insecticide free. Pretty much organic but I'm not getting certified.  I will also be selling free-range brown eggs.
Cheddar cauli, purple cauli, several heirloom types of tomatoes, fingerling potatoes, purple potatoes, MANY different squash varieties, broccoli, green beans, purple beans,
asparagus bean, cucumbers, shallots, multicolored carrots and radish, lots and lots of different peppers. (mini belle, colored bell, hot peppers) and I know other stuff that I am forgetting.  So as this stuff begins to mature I will be up there selling it.  I will be posting back on this site with up dates on what is riping and what I will be bringing.  I am also going to try my hand at watermelon and pumpkins in the river bottom.  I'm also going to try growing tobacco this year but that will be for my hubby's consumption. :)

Eyeore, how are your bees doing?  Mine tried to abscond the hive but I convinced them that the hive provided was the best place for them.  They kinda hurt my feelings...WAS IT NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEM?!!! Ungrateful bees!

I stopped by the new Farmer's Market this morning after getting off work. As mentioned it is now at the Wayneville City Park located on the north end of the soccer fields under the trees.  Excellent spot. Parking across the drive from the booths.  Only vendors there today but the 15 min or so I was there it was a constant crowd of people.  I think they will have a success here. 

Also I will mention here that we will be selling our handcrafted bath and body products and dried herbs at the market starting on June 6 and adding in fresh herbs and naturally grown (we are not organically certified) veggies as they come in.

I think it will be a good time.  I so enjoyed selling my herbs in a Metro KC market.  Didn't have the soaps then as I was with an ex.  I will have some dried herbs to start and the chives are ready too.

We have to wait til June because I have to work a 12 hour shift this Sat. and next week I will be auctioning with Ed up on T Hwy.
