The concept behind the farmer’s market is growing up and expanding the way small scale produces can find bigger markets.
“We see ourselves as providing a service of convenience to consumers and a service to local growers,” said Emily Rude is the Crop Coordinator for Prairieland Market in Salina.
“We believe that will help improve the food system as a whole for our community.”
Rude joined in on the KSAL Morning News Tuesday with a look a how a local food subscription service is working.
Rude told the audience that each week – at least ten area farmers are set to provide eighty Prairieland subscribers with boxes of fresh, seasonal produce, meat and cheese for a monthly fee.
She added that customers have until Wednesday, June 8th to sign up for the service and can learn more online at www.prairielandmarket.org/csa or visit the operation at 305 E. Walnut.
