NTCC invites you to visit their farmers market Friday morning

The Northeast Texas Community College is about to launch this year's farmer's market, and it looks like it'll be bigger and better than ever!

From NTCC:

MOUNT PLEASANT, TX - Mark your calendar, grab your market basket, and come on over to one of the many markets opening up in these next few weeks. Every purchase you make at a farmers market not only feeds your family the freshest and healthiest produce and proteins available, your purchase also helps to feed our local farmers and ranchers and their families.

You’re invited to come stay cool at our Summer Sizzling NTCC Farmer’s Market this Friday, June 6th beginning at 9 am. A variety of vendors will be here to provide fresh herbs, greens, pastured pork, honey, jams and jellies, farm fresh eggs, beautiful plants, and other handmade, homemade and homegrown products. NTCC will be selling its natural compost tea to help you to produce some healthy vegetables, hay crop, or even grass in your yard – all the natural way. If you are looking for pullets – we have chicks all 6 weeks old – buy early and save; just $4 each.

There are vendor spaces still available at no charge and we have both inside and outside spaces. We also welcome non-profit groups and churches interested in raising money with raffles or handcrafted items and love serving our community in this way. Perhaps you are a creative musician or artist and would love to come out and show off your talents contact us and we will have your stage waiting on you. This market menu will feature the famous Northeast grass fed beef burger deals – Burger, Chips and a Drink are a steal for just $5 we start serving at 11 am until they’re gone! In addition to the burger deal - we will be serving up some veggies straight from the garden – fried green tomatoes and roasted onions and collards – definitely an early summer favorite. For each market we will be showcasing the newest veggies as they begin to get ripe – come by and taste the difference that FARM FRESH makes. Our Farming in a Minute tip at the Lunch and Learn program will be Tips on Growing Better Tomato and will begin at noon – check out our calendar events at www.ntcc.edu.ag/ for a complete list of all the Farming in a Minute Topics. Come celebrate the end of the school year and the official beginning of summer with a great day at the NTCC Farmer’s Market. New this market - $1 off purchase with picture of our roadside signs (seen left) – take a picture save a dollar! You can also print out a copy of our flyer and bring that to get the same $1 off of purchase.

    More than a few tar-covered tires are hanging on to the parking lot of a Lufkin tire shop.  On August 31, newly laid asphalt on Loop 287 started sticking to tires of those driving, leaving many of the cars un-driveable. As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
