SAFM busy again at fairgrounds


Bringing her umbrella with her, Eva Loyd and her husband John, both of Clinton, didn’t let a slight rain faze them at the Sedalia Area Farmers Market Friday afternoon on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. The couple said they had been married 60 years and this was their first time to visit the market. “We didn’t know it was here,” John Loyd said. The couple purchased Ruby Queen hybrid corn from vendor Carrie Pittman of the Rupe Rabbit Ranch, of Ionia.


Not quite picking a peck of peppers, Michah Neal, 4, places colorful habanero peppers into a pint container for his grandmother Janette Neal, a vendor with Bristol Ridge Farm in Leeton. “It doesn’t hurt to touch them,” Janette Neal said of the extremely hot peppers.


Decorative mini pumpkins and gourds look fall-like on the table of SAFM vendor Mark Nolt of Nolt Produce, of Warrensburg. Nolt said they sell a variety of fruits and vegetables, plus honey at the market. “Our fall crop is mums,” he added. “We have over 2,000 of them.


Janette Hunter, of Sedalia, decided to purchase onions and peppers from SAFM vendor Allison Rupe of the Rupe Family Farm, of Otterville. During her visit to the market Friday she also bought a blackberry pie and came back to Rupe’s stand for tomatoes to make homemade tomato sauce. “I just come and look and see what I’m hungry for,” Hunter said.
