Have you heard the news? FMO is branching out to form a franchise market in Branson, MO., at the Branson Landing.
Consumers are demanding fresh, locally grown produce and are seeking out options to purchase specialty crops. To fulfill customer demand for fresh farm products and serve the region’s farmers the Farmers Market of the Ozarks (FMO) is seeking vendors that are interested in joining the fastest growing market in the state. FMO will launch its second franchise market in Branson, MO., in partnership with the Branson Landing. The market is currently taking membership applications for fall membership and will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, August 11 at the Branson Convention Center from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm to learn more about the newly created market.
“Our end objective is to improve the financial success of farmers across the Ozarks, through a well-structured market in Branson, in turn creating increased sales of the crops producers grow,” explained FMO Executive Director Lane McConnell. “We want unique, handmade, and locally grown products to meet the demand of the community.”
The market will hold a fall market on the far south end of the Branson Landing parking lot, located on Branson Landing Boulevard in September and October each Tuesday evening from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. In 2016, the market will be open every Tuesday from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm, April through October.
“We are very excited about this new partnership with the FMO, as this market will grant us another opportunity to share and showcase the amazing and plentiful offerings available from the farmers and artisans of the Ozarks. This new partnership with FMO and their expertise in improving the financial success of our local farmers across the Ozarks, will provide the best unique, handmade and locally grown products to those living in our community, as well as our guests visiting Branson Landing and the Branson area,” stated Tammy Scholten , Director of Marketing for Branson Landing.
