The Dexter Farmer’s Market, in its fifth year, is open from 8 to 11:30 a.m., every Friday from June 4 through July 30 at 310 E. Valley Ave., in Dexter, two blocks east of the clinic on Valley Street on the north side of the street.

Vendors have put together some packages, which will be drawn for as the summer commences. A donation of 50 cents per chance is appreciated. Look for details at the market or on our webpage

The market is registered with the state and accepts senior voucher that allows  lower-income senior citizens to purchase fresh produce. The Farm Bureau also provides some shopping vouchers that can be picked up at the Area Agency on Aging at 304 S. Summit St., in Arkansas City.

Vendor space is free. There are several youth and teen vendors again this year. Market manager is Lynn Norris, and Jennifer Moreland is the assistant manager. A student from Dexter serves as caretaker for the animals at the mini-farm this summer.
