Being a vendor at the downtown Meridian Farmer’s Market, I just want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those of you that have attended so far.

We’re not up to our full capacity vendor-wise with vendors waiting on their crops to get established after this wildly wet season. Let’s hope it settles down some so all those wonderful asparagus, lettuces, spinach, kale, onions, radishes, beets, carrots and even mushrooms will start coming in. We can hardly wait.

With our new location at 2nd Street and Douglas, behind the Hatch Furniture building, we have generous parking and a roomy, flat parking lot, easily accessible for seniors and handicapped people; also children and animal friendly.

So far our market has been eminently successful for all our vendors. Even at this early stage we have a variety of goods, ranging from kolaches, homemade breads, noodles, eggs, angel food cakes, popcorn, organic meats, hand-crafted kitchen towels and crochet items, wood signs, Yankton’s non-profit organizations, photos, cards, one-of-a-kind jewelry, vintage jewelry, calligraphy and artwork.

Live music provided by James Dean and Jose and Audrey creates a casual and friendly atmosphere for everyone.

Please stop by my booth and check out the calligraphy, cards, artwork, vintage jewelry, some crystals and stones — many of which come from India.

It will only get better as we dive into the summer and the sunshine produces more wonderful produce and vendors. The Cameron Colony will be attending soon.

Look forwarding to seeing you there Saturday mornings 9 a.m. to noon!
