Fresh produce just got a little easier to both buy and to sell in Navasota after City Council passed a resolution, in this months first Council session, allowing agricultural producers to market their goods outside of specified farmers markets dates and locations.
One local vendor praised the farmers market, City Manager Brad Stafford told council, and he also said there needs to be more, noting that’s why he has an agreement with a downtown business to set up shop in its parking lot.
And because some vendors also deal in live fowl, Stafford and Mayor Protem Grant Holt proceeded to clarify for Councilman Geoff Horn fresh produce doesn’t include live animals.
Following the meeting, Stafford explained to Navasota News that producers can set up shop in a parking lot with permission from the land owner.
And if you’re a producer and want people to know where and when your stand will be in town, give us a call at 936-825-9007 and we’ll put it on our Community Calendar.
