Karnes County Market Days will take place the third Saturday of each month beginning Saturday, August 17, starting at 9 a.m. and running through 4 p.m.
The Market Days events will happen on the grounds of Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital located at 3349 S. U.S. Highway 181 between Karnes City and Kenedy.
Organizers of the new event say the Market Days farmer’s market will feature fruits and vegetables grown by local area farmers, homemade crafts, plants, candles, jellies and jams, specialty items and much more.
“We have received much interest, including local Karnes County vendors who will be having booths at the event,” said Kenedy Chamber of Commerce Board Member Christina Benavides.
“Vendor guidelines have been established to maintain the integrity of what a ‘Market Days’ is about and to be compliant with the state sales tax laws as well as the Texas Health Department regulations,” Benavides added.
Farmers who wish to participate will pay a fee of $10 for a 10-foot by 10-foot space and Market Days vendors will pay a fee of $25 for the same size space.
“We want to express special thanks to Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital which is allowing Market Days to be held at the hospital’s location,” Benavides said.
