Black Hills Farmers Market opens in Market Park

RAPID CITY, S.D. — For residents who want to shop local, the Black Hills Farmers Market launched their curbside pickup Saturday in Market Park at East Omaha Street.

Every Saturday, customers can pick up food orders placed online Tuesday through Thursday, while remaining in their cars. The goal is to foster a direct connection between local farmers and consumers while supporting an industry hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

“All of our products come from within 200 miles of the Rapid City area except for a few things that are not available here, our dairy, cheeses, ice cream and peaches tree fruits like that, might come from the region but everything else is within 200 miles,” said Barbara Cromwell, the Manager of the Black Hills Farmers Market.

Through their “Double Up Food bucks” Program, the Black Hills Farmers Market is also providing a one-to-one match, up to $20 per day, for customers shopping with their EBT cards.

On-site shopping in Market Park is currently unavailable.
