TEXARKANA — The Texarkana Farmers’ Market will open on May 1 for the 2021 summer season.
The market is located at 305 Texas Boulevard in Texarkana, Texas.
The theme of the May 1 opening will be “Meet Your Farmers,” which is sponsored by Farmers Bank and Trust. A social media campaign will highlight the many vendors that will be part of the 2021 Farmers Market.
The market opens every Saturday through July at 7:00 a.m. and runs until 12:00 p.m., or until sold out.
Cultural foods coordinator and mobile market manager Annemarie Sullivan says that they will have a “steady new stream” of people looking for better options after an “unpredictable season” in 2020.
“We have a steady new stream of people looking for more local, healthy food choices,” Sullivan said. “We are excited to open back up and fill that need! Whether you are a regular at the market, or just found us, we appreciate you making time on a Saturday to come out and get the best in locally produced foods and goods. Your purchases support our local economy, family farms, and small businesses.”
