2013 Spring Expo, Best in Show


The Emporia Farmers Market was one of four vendors selected as “Best in Show” at the 2013 Spring Expo. It feels wrong to take credit, however, when the 1948 International Truck that was our booth drew so much attention. Please take a moment to thank Paul DuToit of PrairieLand Partners and Jesse Wilson of Thurston Automotive Plus. This truck is a masterpiece thanks to these two guys, and an incredible gift for promoting the market.  Many thanks, as well, goes to Nancy Crawford for setting us up with such a gorgeous display of product available right now at the Indoor Winter Markets.


Paul DuToit of PrairieLand Partners and Jesse Wilson of Thurston's Plus are the guys responsible for the beautifully restored 1948 International Truck that now depicts the Emporia Farmers Market logo.

Emporia Farmers Market received one of the "Best in Show" awards at the 2013 Spring Expo.
