LUSK – The 2020 Lusk Farmers Market kicked off Tuesday night, July 21, starting at 4 p.m.
And by 4:15, Washington Park was teeming with visitors to the vendor booths and food trucks. Under blue skies and a slight breeze young and old enjoyed the variety of local offerings, from jewelry to reclaimed treasures and produce to apparel.
More than a dozen vendors were in attendance for the first market. The organizing committee hopes the success of the first event will encourage other vendors to participate in the next one, scheduled for Aug. 18.
Attendees were able to purchase an Italian soda from the Tiger Boosters, custom silk screen shirts from Split Ear Steer designs, honey from the 4-H program, jewelry from Becky Deircks and pick up a pot pie for dinner from the homemakers. Or maybe they chose to treat the family to a hot dog and mini donuts from K-Dogs and take home some produce from Chloe’s Garden. There were activities for kids provided by the Tiger Plunge lifeguards, with face painting, rubber duck draw and a dunk booth.
The committee sold Lusk ROCS 2021 calendars and farmers market bags to help fund future community events and future farmers market activities.
Interested vendors can contact the committee via their Facebook page. Slots are still available for the August and September markets. Be sure to mark your calendar for an evening of relaxation and fun at the Lusk Farmers Market.
