Farmer’s Market promotes small business


LUSK – After two years of planning and organizing, the Lusk Farmer’s market will open on Tuesday, July 21. 

Originally planned for the summer of 2019, complications with vendor fees, liability insurance and other obstacles, meant the market was not held. The organizers are excited to once again bring this opportunity to Lusk.

With reduced fees for vendors from outside Lusk and a discount to participate in all three dates, the Lusk Farmers Market hopes to present business opportunities to both local and traveling vendors. 

Products at vendor booths must be grown or made by the vendors. Anyone wishing to set up at the market with products that are not home-grown or home-made must receive prior approval from the Farmers Market committee.

The market will be held in Washington Park in Lusk from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. Vendors are responsible for any specialty permits, taxes and food safety requirements. Generators are not permitted nor are stakes for tents. Any tent used needs to utilize weights. Pets are not allowed at the market.

A discount will be given to vendors who commit to attending all three markets with the cost for all three at $50. Individual markets are $20 per vendor slot. All vendor spaces are first come, first serve and vendors are encouraged to arrive a minimum of thirty minutes prior to the start of the market.

Deadline for the July market sign up is June 19. Forms, releases and rules can be found on the Farmers Market Facebook page. For questions please contact Cassandra Matney, Donna Hanson or Karen Wisseman.
