In the late 1950's, the original Farmers Market, located on N. McDonough, was strictly an outlet where farmers could sell their produce. In 1960, as a convenience for the farmers, the Tucker family set up a small counter in two stalls offering light breakfasts and lunches of sandwiches and camp stew.
About five years later, to handle the demand, they expanded into more stalls, added tables and chairs and opened a cafeteria line. In 1970, as the supermarket chains began moving in, farmers began delivering to businesses, but the restaurant became even more popular, so they did a complete turn-about leaving only a few stalls to keep the open air atmosphere and renovated the Farmers Market Cafe as it is today.
In the early 1980's, Phil and JoAnn Norton, purchased the cafe from the Cecil Tucker family. They served the community for many years, with good country cooking, friendliness and a family atmosphere. Now purchased by the Burbage Family in 2014, we strive to carry on the Farmers Market Café tradition and continue to make your tummy happy!
