The Cole County Farmers' Market began in 1992 and has become a valuable tradition. All vendors must be from Cole or any adjoining county, and produce all products they sell, no resale of purchased products will be allowed. Producers arrive 30-60 minutes before market opening to set up displays, but "no early sales" is strictly enforced.

The Market opens in early April with mostly bedding plants, potted plants and hanging baskets. May brings fresh salad greens and hydroponics tomatoes. In June, we add new potatoes and peas and our first taste of green beans. The summer months provide sweet corn, peaches, melons, eggplants, apples, peppers, etc. The Fall brings a large variety of produce, with hardy mums and all your fall decorating needs.
