Why FMO

DSC_0906Farmers Market of the Ozarks combines farm fresh goodness, hand-crafted products and local eateries, all in one location that is easily accessible to the Ozarks community.  Customers can shop for their weekly groceries, find unique gifts that are made from local artisans, enjoy musical talents of local artists and enjoy breakfast and lunch, all within the market’s laid back atmosphere.

FMO provides vendors from a 150-mile radius of Springfield, Mo., the opportunity to bring the best from the county to the city.  Additionally, consumers have the ability to “Put a Face to Their Food” each week with a visit to the market.

In July 2013, FMO became the first farmers market in the region to be housed in a year-round pavilion, inside the Farmers Park Development.  The pavilion serves as an open air facility when the weather is pleasant, with fans and a kitchen.  During the winter months the pavilion is furnished with roll down doors and radiant heat inside, making the market a year-round facility.

Our market accepts SNAP, debit and credit cards.  To use these forms of payment, please go to the Market Info Hub and our market management will swipe your card on our wireless machine and give you tokens that you can spend with any of our vendors just like cash.
