Farm to Table has moved its auction to Facebook this year, and we are excited about you joining us. Proceeds from the auction will be used to make improvements at the farmers’ market and help us continue to be the Saturday morning place to be. Thank you for your continued support.
Welcome to the Farm to Table auction guide! The amount of support for this event has been overwhelming, and I appreciate everyone’s willingness to support our local community during this challenging time.
DeSoto Farmers’ Market was started in 2009 and continues to be a thriving program of Get Healthy DeSoto. Improving access to local products and goods was the original intention, and we continue to do this every Saturday, May through October from 8 am until noon. With a pandemic, the access provided to local food has been an essential part of our economy and has highlighted the need to further expand our market.
While highlighting the necessity of the market, the pandemic has also challenged us in ways we couldn’t have anticipated. Creating a pre-order option and contactless drive-thru for pick-ups has been a great addition to our market. We’ve tried to handle the challenges with as much grace as possible and feel we’ve excelled at being flexible. How could we have anticipated the hurdles and other obstacles? In truth, it is the leadership of our board and steering committee that has helped us persevere. In addition to that, fabulous staff and volunteers make the market run smoothly. That and a bit of humor and cookies, and the market will come away from this better than ever!
We greatly appreciate everyone who has shown up to make this season great. Whether you’ve lent your physical strength, a sounding board for ideas, or supported us financially, we thank you. We couldn’t do this without you.
Farm to Table has always been about connecting our vendors to the local community. During the days leading up to the auction and during it, you’ll see short videos about our vendors as we continue to build those connections between our great donors and our wonderful market.
Thank you again, and enjoy the auction!
