Northeast Missouri Food Fest Sept 18th

The 10th Annual NEMO Food Fest will be held in conjunction with the Kirksville Farmers‟ Market, Saturday, September 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon on the square in Kirksville. Food Fest is an event to showcase locally grown food, to inform the public on what foods are available from local producers, and to share the advantages of buying and eating locally grown foods. Walk through the Farmers' Market and visit with local producers of meat, fruits and vegetables, baked goods and more. Learn what products are grown locally and how you can purchase them.

Local producers will be displaying and discussing their products as well as providing free samples. There will also be cooking demonstrations by local producers including Primme's Pork, Lost Branch Blueberry Farm, Hollenbeck Honey Farm, and Cole Farms. The first cooking demonstration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the second demonstration will start at 10:30 a.m. Door prizes will be drawn throughout the morning with the grand prize drawings at 11:45 a.m.

This year, in celebration of our 10th year, we will be hosting a youth talent show, highlighting local youth 18 years and younger from Northeast Missouri. For more information or an entry form for the talent show, please visit our website.
