Regional Farmers Market hopes to bring county, area growers together

Calling all interested growers and vendors. An organizational meeting for a Milam County Regional Farmers Market is set for Saturday, Feb. 18, at 1 p.m. in Founders Hall at The Yards of Cameron.

 Milam County and surrounding areas have many growers from organic produce to lamb and of course beef. 

Ginger Watkins, executive director of the Cameron Industrial Foundation said the Milam County region is primed to host an outstanding and visible market at The Yards of Cameron. The market hopes to draw from major farms to smaller backyard growers throughout the county and area.

Watkins said the physical structure is in place with the 44 Farms Farmer’s Market Pavilion which is front and center at The Yards of Cameron.  The Yards of Cameron is new, clean and attractive with ready to go amenities such as: ample parking, public restrooms, electricity and water in the Pavilion. It is also easy to access with major highway exposure. 

“The physical structure is in place to host farmers markets for the region,” Watkins said. “The next step requires you, the growers and vendors to help define the organization of the market. The market cannot be successful without the input of growers and vendors.”  

The meeting will help define the organization, frequency and dates of a Milam Regional Farmers Market. 

The Yards of Cameron is located at 301 Adams in Cameron.
