The Main Street Farmers’ Market is expecting one of its newest vendors to return Saturday, as well as a cooking demonstration from the Extension service.

The Sulphur Springs Department of Tourism is also sponsoring its second Flea Market on the Square this weekend.

Rusty’s Grass Finished Foods, based on a local farm, came to the Farmers' Market for the first time last Saturday. The operation can best be described, as owner Rusty Roth says, as “Cutting edge — 100 years ago.” He raises cattle on a 1,200-acre farm near Como, letting the livestock graze exclusively on native Texas grasses. They graze 365 days a year without supplemented grain, and don’t use hormones, antibiotics or wormers. In fact, Roth’s stated goal is to stay away from any type of chemicals (that includes processing, as well). Besides beef products like steaks and German sausage, they also sell  sorbets.

Also scheduled for Saturday’s Farmers’ Market, which is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., is a cooking demonstration by Hopkins County Extension office agents on "Homemade seasoning mixes with herbs and spice."

The anticipated list of vendors for Saturday:

  • Three Oaks Farm — plants, hanging baskets, flowers
  • Robert Armor — smoked cheese
