The Benton Farmers Market has always opened the first Thursday of May, but with the current coronavirus restrictions, the market hopes to be able to open the first Thursday of June this year.

The market's produce vendors are planting and planning for the season knowing that the market may have a different appearance this year. The market will again be accepting Link cards and will have the Link matching funds. Vendors may be able to pre-package for customers, or vendors may be able to deliver products to customers or arrange for safe pick-up options.

Customers should check the Benton Farmers Market Facebook page to keep abreast of current plans. The market typically runs from 3 to 6 p.m. each Thursday during the market season at Benton City Park.
