Ada Farmer’s Market ‘alive and well’

Ada —  

City officials say they want residents to know Ada Farmer’s Market, located at the corner of 12th and Townsend streets for two decades, continues to operate. “I feel like a story that ran in the newspaper may have created some confusion with the public and with Ada Farmer’s Market vendors,” said Randy McFarlin, park and public facilities director.

“We want folks to know Ada’s Farmer’s Market is alive and well and still in the same location.”

The Ada Evening News story McFarlin referred to concerned the recent opening of a county Farmer’s Market begun at Pontotoc County Agri-plex.

McFarlin said the key issue is Ada’s Farmer’s Market has space limitations such that it can only accommodate 34 vendors. “We’re limited in space and so we have a list of about a dozen alternate vendors who have a chance to participate. If a regular vendor doesn’t show up by 8 a.m. an alternate gets to fill that space,” he said.

The county decided to host its own Farmer’s Market to give additional vendors a venue to sell their produce.

McFarlin said Ada Farmer’s Market is administered jointly by the city of Ada, Ada Main Street and Pontotoc County Health Department. Hours of operation continue to be Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
