With all of the negative news about the city of Ferguson, Missouri, it is easy to forget how beautiful the city is and how wonderful the people that live there are. Living less than five miles away in the city of Florissant, I have been going to this market for the last several years. I am even working with a couple of colleagues and the market manager to open my own stall in the near future. I hope to sell Filipino food during market hours.
Hahn Farm, Thies Farm and EarthDance Farm are three of the regular vendors that I visit nearly every Saturday. EarthDance is actually located in the Ferguson city limits. There are also several prepared food and craft vendors at the market every week. The Omelet stand is the earliest non-farmer stand that I can remember.
So I hope that Missourians and others around the country that have heard nothing but bad news about Ferguson for the past couple of weeks will remember that this is a wonderful community. Come on out if you’re in the area and support the market and the farmers.
