Each year, the DeSoto Farmers’ Market celebrates National Farmers Market Week. We’ve included all sorts of activities over the years, and this year, we’re doing something a little different.
Here’s why we celebrate:
For so many reasons, farmers markets have always been essential. We bring the community together with nutritious foods, support the livelihoods of local farmers, contribute to the wellbeing of our planet, and so much more. But nothing has emphasized the intrinsic role farmers markets play in our food system quite like a global pandemic. Over the past year and a half, we’ve quickly implemented innovative safety practices, keeping our community healthy and fed.
Now, we think it is time to rejoice in our success and have a little fun. We’re looking for adventurers!
We are planning an epic quest on Saturday, August 07, 2021 from 9 AM until 2 PM. The way it works is that you register your team (2-4 people) and receive clues on August 7th that direct you to different locations around town. You then head out to the locations you think are correct, document the quest, and submit your documentation.
the importance of a good scribe
For this quest, a scribe is needed. This is the person that will receive the clues and submit your photos and video clips. As non-quest as it sounds, this needs to be your techy friend!
Each 2-4 person team must register before 10 AM on August 07, 2021. Early bird pricing is just $12 per person and lasts through July 24th. The cost is $15 per person after that until the morning of the quest. (If you participated in our Winter Fun Scavenger Hunt, be checking your email for special discount too!)
