Two farmers markets in our listening area are among the 12 selected statewide to be part of a program that boosts the availability of specialty crops. The Allen County Farmers’ Market in Iola and Humboldt and the Main Street Farmers’ Market in Chanute were both included in the Meet Me at the Market stipend program. It is overseen by The Kansas Department of Agriculture and provides market managers and vendors with resources to increase awareness of specialty crops available at their market. Specialty crops are defined as “fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, horticulture and nursery crops, including floriculture.”
Next week, the Kansas Department of Transportation plans to begin a project to install tower lights at the interchange of U.S. 169 and 35th Street in Chanute. Traffic on the 35th St. bridge over U.S. 169 may be occasionally be reduced to one lane, with brief delays. Weather permitting, the lighting work should be finished in one month.
