The Eastern Panhandle Farmers' Market will begin this Wednesday, in Wheeler.

As The Pampa News reports, the market will begin at three p.m. on the east side of the Wheeler courthouse. The Farmer’s Market will welcome vendors from Wheeler, Gray, Collingsworth, and Hemphill counties, and will run until about six p.m. Another market will be held on Saturday July 1, from 9 a.m. til noon, and farmer’s markets will continue through the summer every Wednesday and Saturday until October.

Anyone who grows produce in any of the four counties mentioned is welcome to sell their goods at the market. The market also welcomes those who sell nuts, animals, honey, canned goods, baked goods, and homemade arts and crafts.

With the recent rains, the first market is likely to have a good selection of early crops like squash, cucumbers, onions and berries.
