SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - The rainy morning weather didn't stop the Sioux City Farmers Market from setting up shop Wednesday.
Growers and livestock producers were out early selling eggs, produce, meat, honey and even some popcorn to those looking to have first crack at the opening day stock.
Farmers say there's are major benefits to buying from them. You know your food is fresh, you know it's local and you know it will be good.
"They can tell you that there's no drugs, no hormones, and no antibiotics. It's just better quality." said Jerad Ebert, local farmer.
The market will be welcoming some new vendors this year including shrimp sellers and a tool sharpener, but will still have favorite attractions like live performances and fresh made early morning breakfasts.
"I just hope everybody comes down, if not today, Saturday. Come have breakfast with us and fill up the refrigerator," said Brittany Hoffman.
The market is open thru October 26th, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Hoffman says a lot of the produce spots are already filled up for the year,
but they can always make room for unique products.
