As Farmers Markets End, Vendors Look Ahead to Next Year

HANNIBAL (WGEM) — Tri-States farmers’ markets are beginning to wrap up the season, but local vendors are already looking ahead to next year.

The Hannibal Farmers Market had its last run of the year on Saturday in conjunction with the Halloween Spooktacular in Central Park.

Event organizer and local vendor Kelsey Ryan said they plan to add a farmers market to New London before spring.

“In March and April I put out feelers,” Ryan said. ‘About possibly placing one in New London. The locals said ‘that’s great’, with the gas prices so high they don’t want to travel to Hannibal, so it was definitely something we needed. And I know there are a lot of craftsmen out there, so we need to get everyone involved.”

Ryan said the New London farmers market would be in the city park behind the old school.

The next farmer’s market season starts sometime in April.
