American Legion opens community market


Last weekend, the American Legion Post 84 opened their “Community Market” on the Legion grounds, located at 800 N. May (Highway 75 N.), in Madisonville. The market, which will be open on Saturdays, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., is designed to offer fresh local produce, eggs, jellies, berries, and other products, as well as handcraft items. A list of the vendors scheduled to sell at the market are Double M Sweets, offering homemade Jams, jellies and assorted Candied Jalapeno Jellies (Cowboy Candy); Jolly’s Blackberry Farm, with fresh Blackberries and homegrown tomatoes; Kirtley’s Farm, selling fresh produce, pickles, breads, jams & jellies; Murphy’s Farm, offering fresh produce; Respite Family Ranch, selling fresh produce and free range eggs; Kefier Grains (& honey coming soon);

Sandy’s Goodies, with assorted Jalapeno Jellies & handmade crafts; Yaupon Hill Farm, selling free range eggs, rabbits, chickens and AKC Rottweilers and the Davis Ranch, offering fresh produce. More vendors are invited to participate in the coming weeks. 

The Legion’s Commander, Ken Murphy, was quick to point out that this is not a flea market. 

“We are a veterans family organization and are interested in supporting the community in any way we can," Murphy said. "We hope to have some family activities at the post in the not too distant future."
