Bismarket Opens for the Season

Posted: Updated:
Warm weather welcomes many summer traditions in Bismarck, including boating, cookouts and today Sertoma Park held it's first Bismarket of 2014.

The weekly farmers market kicked off the summer with a day full of tours, cooking, demonstrations and plenty of kids activities. Vendors selling fresh produce, homemade breads, eggs and even coffee, lined the path and were able to speak with their customers face to face. New to the market this year are meat vendors. Managers say farmers markets are a critical part of the push to support local producers.

"Yeah they're really important, and that they're just really connection the consumer to their food source and when you start looking at that you really value where your food comes from you appreciate it, and not only does it taste fresher and better, it's healthier for you," says market manager Katie Dinneen. 

The market is held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturdays and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays. And it now accepts snap benefits.
