Salina Start-Up Helps Area Producers

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 or visit the operation at 305 E. Walnut.
