BISMARCK, North Dakota — It's National Farmers Market Week, and everything from beef to veggies to honey is going on sale at the state Capitol in Bismarck.
The Capitol is hosting the 11th annual North Dakota Farmers Market Day on Wednesday. More than 20 vendors are taking part from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the top of the Capitol loop on the south lawn.
Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says people can buy fresh food, meet the growers, and get recipes and tips. They also can listen to music from members of the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra, and get free ice cream.
Goehring says North Dakota has about 50 farmers markets. There are more than 8,200 nationwide.
