This year has been a challenging year for our world altogether. Even though a worldwide pandemic was well underway, we decided to go ahead and kick off our 2020 Tontitown Farmers’ Market in May, with hopes of providing some locally-sourced goods for our community, and a bit of normalcy somewhere along the way. In a time of facemasks and elbow bumps, our community came through.

Our market season was a lot slower than usual due to Covid-19, but we grew as well. We have several new vendors who introduced themselves into our market family and brought new and exciting products to share with our community. We were able to attract several new families who never knew about our market, and even acquired several new regular customers who became more like friends. As our market began winding down and craft festivals began filling our calendars, we were still able to offer a wide variety of goods to our community every week despite other festivities going on around us.

Even though this year was one of uncertainty for me, of one thing I am certain…the Tontitown Farmers’ Market has some of the very best vendors around! Each vendor is caring, hospitable, thoughtful, and full of excitement for our market. We will miss seeing each other every week. The conversations, laughs, ideas, and excitement for our market and its potential is something we all look forward to. With that being said, we do hope you will join us next year, as a patron or as a vendor.

We are always looking for new vendors to add to our Farmers Market family and if you are interested, we would love to talk with you and answer any questions you may have. If you are interested in finding out more about the market, please email Danielle at  ddelille@tontitownar.gov. Stay safe and healthy out there my friends! We will see you May 1st, 2021 when we kick off our 2021 season bigger, stronger, and better than ever!
