Farmer's Market Flourishes Despite Heat

Farmer's Market Flourishes Despite Heat
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Bright and sunny days are drawing crowds to the Falls Park farmer’s market every weekend. But a lack of moisture is making what's out on display a little bit harder to come by this season.

Many farmers are watering their crops weekly instead of relying on the rainfall they usually get in the summer. While they're able to get by for now, corn farmers are hoping for a timely rain to keep everything growing through the rest of the season.

It's really important that we get that rain when the field corn has to tassel because soon after that the ears of corn are going to develop and it’s so critical,” South Dakota farmer Chase Jensen said.

While the record dry spell has made raising crop difficult, Jensen says that farmer’s market crowds have been flourishing.
