Saturday, May 21, 2022 - A farmers market planning meeting will be held Sunday, May 22 at 2:00 pm at the Marble City Historical Society (old bank building) in downtown Marble City.
Organizers are inviting local farmers, gardeners, businesses, and other vendors to participate in the development of a community farmers market.
Marble City Mayor Tamara Hibbard and Donna Brackett are leading the effort in this endeavor. Brackett said, "We are working to put the finishing touches on our plan and would like to receive the public’s opinions so we can avoid any unnecessary issues."
The purpose of the meeting is to gain insight and valuable perspectives from others regarding the rules, regulations, bylaws, and fees that come along with a farmers market. The event is aimed at gaining an overall vision for the future of the Marble City Farmers Market and the community as a whole.
Discussions have taken place with Sequoyah County Healthy Living Program (HLP) staff in hopes of registering producers and getting them onboard with the idea of accepting SNAP/EBT benefits.
"This would be an incredible asset to the community of Marble City," Brackett added.
