Farmers market to return to Park County Complex this summer

“This year’s going to be better than last,” says J.R. Megee, the director of the Big Horn Basin Farmers Market Association, of the market that's coming to Cody.

The association's Cody market, which operates on the southwest parking lot and grounds of the Park County Complex, won't start up until June, but improvements are already in the works.

Megee said they’ll be opening up the market to vendors within a 100-mile radius of Cody and allowing some non-local folks to participate. That’s intended to bring in some items that the market hasn’t had, he said, including more fruit.

Megee also said there are plan to begin accepting payments from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and from debit cards.

The market runs on Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The first market is set for June 18, with the last one tentatively scheduled for Oct. 29.

Park County Commissioners agreed at their Feb. 17 meeting to let the non-profit association again use the complex’s parking lot and grounds for free.

“Hope you have a great summer,” Commission Chairman Joe Tilden told Megee.
