In addition to that, the Department of Agriculture also names two Champions of the Year. Pastor Darlene Payne was named a Champion of the Year, and we are truly fortunate to have her as one of our market champions!

Each year, the Missouri Department of Agriculture gives out three awards to markets around the state. One is for Best Advertising/Marketing Campaign of the Year, and that went to Fair Grove Farmers' Market. Webb City Farmers' Market won for Best Photo. However, we won too! We won for Best Event with our Meet Me at the Market last September. That's when we had the Recycling Contest and multiple State Representatives were honored at the market.
