Despite Severe Drought Some Farmers Still Have Products to Sell But No Place

As Texas experiences one of the most costly droughts in more than a century, farmers across the state have been hit with record losses as pasture land has burned up under exceptional drought conditions. Texas farmers have been forced to quickly sell their cattle to feedlots, vegetable crops have dried up in the fields and many farmers markets have closed leaving some farmers with no place to sell their products.

The drought has greatly affected many of the East Texas farmers who also participate in the Historic Longview Farmers Market. Many went to great lengths to grow larger crops, produce more products and buy more chickens in order to participate in the market this year. The Historic Longview Farmers Market has had to temporarily close due to the drought but plans to reopen in the fall pending a break from the extreme weather conditions. The market's closure has left some of the vendors, who do not grow vegetables, without an avenue to sell their products.

If you would like to buy pasture raised eggs, artisan goat cheese, or another item such as jelly please visit the Historic Longview Farmers Market website to place your order. If you would like to buy Essentially Naked organic body and candle products, please visit their website. Your continued support of these farmers would be very much appreciated so that they can continue to bring quality food and products to our city.

The Historic Longview Farmers Market is not closed for a definitive time frame but will reopen as soon as more produce is ready. The reopening is dependent on mother nature. Please continue to check the market's website for updates and we hope to see you there as soon as it reopens!

The Historic Longview Farmers Market is located on Cotton St. between High St. and Center St. in downtown Longview, TX and is a project of Preservation Longview.

Please check out the new Farmers Market Gallery 2011 for photos from this season!

Additionally, please consider making a donation to Farm Aid's Family Farm disaster Fund click here. The Family Farm Disaster Fund was established by Farm Aid to help farm families survive weather-related disasters such as tornadoes, devastating flooding and severe drought. America's farmers need your help!

Thank you so much for your continued support of the Historic Longview Farmers Market as well as America's many farmers!
