In April, the City of Great Bend and Barton County announced the postponement of the Summer Street Stroll Farmers Market until June because of the coronavirus crisis. That launch date is still a go as the first farmers market at Jack Kilby Square is scheduled for June 4.

Great Bend Community Coordinator Christina Hayes says the state’s reopening plan will allow for the markets to get underway.

"The Summer Street Stroll is ran by the city and county," said Hayes. "It is the only sanctioned farmers market in town."

Starting in 2012, the Summer Street Stroll occurs Thursdays throughout the summer from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Last year, the “Great Bend, Greater than Great” visioning group created the addition of food trucks joining the farmers market on select dates. The food trucks will return this summer every third Thursday of the month.

"The farmers market at the library (Tuesday and Thursday mornings) is a free for all, but we do want to let people know the market people should not be setting up and selling until June 1," said Hayes.
