New cold treat at Columbia Farmers Market
COLUMBIA - The Columbia Farmers Market first started in 1980 and has been a growing tradition on Saturdays for many people. A new product that will help visitors cool off made its debut on one of the hottest days of the year.
Bill Sullivan's booth usually only sells meats and eggs, but they added a snow cone machine Saturday.
"We planned on adding the snow cone machine all along," said Sullivan when KOMU asked him if the hot weather had anything to do with the decision.
Sullivan jumped at this opportunity, explaining, "There used to be Popsicles sold but they moved near St. Louis."
The snow cones are flavored using homemade and 100% organic syrup.
Weekday markets are on Wednesdays during the summer from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the ARC and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Forum Christian Church.
Saturday markets run from 8:00 a.m. to noon at the ARC.
