HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - The weekly Highland Park Farmers’ Market returned Saturday morning and brought out quite the crowd. The event had been going on for a majority of the summer, and for a number of years prior. Vendors sold a variety of items ranging from jewelry, to juices, to fresh eggs, veggies and more.

Koob Borgeling, a vendor selling honey at the market for his son, said the day had been pretty successful.

“It’s been pretty good,” Borgeling said. “I enjoy coming out to the Farmers’ Market, just meeting everybody coming through and visiting with them... We’ve been coming back here since we moved here in 2006, 2007.”

The market had been going on since June this year, but it had been going countless years prior.

Alan Hoagland, a vendor selling produce, had been attending the event each Saturday in the summer for more than ten years.

“It’s been, and we keep growing, adding more stuff and we have quite a variety anymore,” Hoadland said. “It’s a fun time.”

The Highland Park Farmers’ Market will continue each Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon until fall 2021. The market should return again at the park next summer.
