Farmers say being able to sell their products locally, helps the local economy.

Local farmer, Amy Cates, says, "it's one of the things that my family has been doing for 25 years and its growing produce and providing locally grown produce to other people in the community."

Since Monday night's even is sold out, organizers encourage you to check out the Farmers Market at the fairground on Tuesdays, Friday's and Saturdays.
