The Grundy Center Farmers Market will remain Thursday evenings with a slightly extended time period of 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. and will run from May 19, 2016 through September 29, 2016.  All markets will be held on the courthouse square, with the exception of July 21st, which will be at the Grundy County Fairgrounds during the County Fair.

We are excited about adding several new educational and entertainment pieces to the market this summer to grow both vendors and buyers and hope that you will grow with us!  One of the key things we will be trying this year is a “Market & More”.  Two Thursdays of the season, July 7th and July 21st  (Felix Grundy Days and Grundy County Fair) we invite ALL potential vendors to join the Farmers Market.  This could include home based business vendors (examples- Avon, Mary Kay, antiques) and non-local producers.

                Mailing address for the Farmers Market will be to the Main Street Grundy Office at PO Box 204, Grundy Center, IA 50638.  Publicity will come out of the Grundy County Extension & Outreach office at 703 F Avenue, Suite 1, Grundy Center.  If there are suggestions you may have on ways to improve the market, we welcome hearing those.  Please direct them to Shari Sell-Bakker at the Grundy County Extension & Outreach office at 319-824-6979 or sellbakk@iastate.edu .

                Please return the 2016 Grundy Center Farmers Market Vendor Application, with your fee, no later than April 29, 2016 in order to be included in all marketing materials for the season!  We also ask that if you know of any potentially new vendors, please invite them, we would love to hear from them.  Or send us their information and we would be happy to get in touch! 

                New in 2016: Vendors who attend 75% of the season’s 20 market dates, (May 19-September 29th), so 15 markets total, will receive 50% of their total vendor fees back in appreciation of your dedication and loyalty to the Grundy Center Farmers Market.  For example, if you attend 15 of the 20 markets and paid the $35 seasonal fee, you will receive $17.50 back at the end of the season and have only paid $17.50 for the entire season of markets.
