Farmers market set to open soon
Locally sourced, farm-fresh produce will soon be readily available thanks to the upcoming opening of farmers markets in Clovis and Portales.
Margie Plummer manages the Portales Farmers Market and Clovis Farmers Market, and said this year’s produce offerings will start off small.
“It’s just so early right now,” she explained. “With the way the weather was this year, there’s not a lot of stuff ready.”
Plummer is also a grower and vendor and explained that there will be a lot more to offer within a few weeks.
She and her family harvest and sell everything from black-eyed peas and okra to cucumbers, watermelons and sweet potatoes throughout the growing season.
