The California Historic District's farmers market committee met to finalize the first operation of a local farmers market Friday, Oct. 4. Sales will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Railroad Avenue next to Smith-Burke Park near the Nutrition Center. Vendors will be allowed to set up at 3 p.m. There are no reservations for vendor locations. There will be no charge or registration for this first event. Vendors must be from Moniteau County or adjoining counties. Garden produce, foods, local crafts including art may be sold.

Items must be handmade or grown. Vendors selling food items must have a canopy and follow health department food handling procedures. Garden produce may be sold from trucks.

Vendors may not have animals or pets. There are no vendor charges for the first market. These rules are only for this event. Future markets may have different regulations.

This is the committee's kick-off mini-market. The committee will use the experience and comments to arrange future markets planned for 2014.

A farmers market was ranked high on the California Historic District's goals.

An information booth will be attended on Oct. 4 to answer questions and collect information from vendors and buyers.
