Department of Agriculture Hosts Farmer's Market

Posted: Updated:

More than 20 vendors were at the state capitol today for the annual Farmer's Market.

Today was the biggest gathering since the event began. Vendors sold a variety of fruits and veggies, honey and even lunch. The Agriculture commissioner says it's a good event to showcase some of what North Dakota producers have to offer.

"Things have been expanding. It's amazing how people have learned about something else that's grown somewhere else and they bring it up here and they try and grow it and they find out how well they can do it. It starts increasing production and then you just have another vendor offering something unique from North Dakota back to the consuming public," says North Dakota agriculture commissioner Doug Goehring.

This was the ninth year the Farmer's Market hosted the event at the capitol.
