Hickory County Farmer's Market
254 Hwy, Hermitage, MO 

A healthy diet includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. From May to October, you'll find a wonderful selection of fresh items at our farmers market. You'll also find prepared foods and baked goods, unique craft items and food trucks selling delicious sandwiches and other food items to go.
We are striving to increase access to healthy foods for our underserved area. Our public schools average 70% of the student population qualifying for free and reduced lunches.  Our farmers market will serve these populations better with a matching grant up to $25 per family per week for SNAP/EBT card purchases. The proposed kitchen will increase our ability to provide public education through cooking classes and increased demand for fruits and vegetables.
