ODESSA. Texas (ABC Big 2 / FOX 24) – Many events postponed because of the pandemic are finally getting to happen. On Friday it was a farmers market, that was unique to the Basin.
Medical Center Hospital kicked off it’s farmers market season with the first ever Moonlight Market.
“It feels good to be out, it feels really good to be out with family and friends,” sais Yvonne Rosas, an farmers market goer.
From baked breads and jams to crafted items and live music, the Moonlight Market had a lot to offer people.
“We got some fresh ground coffee from Columbia,” said Nancy McCain.
This was the first farmers market at MCH in over year due to COVID-19.
“We looked at a couple of options last year and we couldn’t just all come to an agreement on what would be appropriate and what wouldn’t,” said Trevor Tankersley ” We were still learning so much about COVID at the time and we took it safe rather than sorry.”
And after a long year of COVID-19, local vendors are happy to be back with the community.
“This is the best open market we have ever had and people are out they are ready to start something new and spend some money,” said Jan Olavarri
With a big turn out, Odessans are also excited to be back out and buying local.
“It’s good for the community, I like that you know we are doing some of these things and adding,” McCain said.
“I missed all the strangers it’s good to feel back to normal,” Olavarri said.
The next farmers market at MCH will be held on June 26.
