Speaking of fresh fruit, be sure to check out the Farmer’s Market in the back of the Old Blacksmith shop on Main Street in Lindsborg. The Lindsborg Farmer’s Market has new hours, and they are now open from 1-4pm on Wednesdays, and from 8 till 5 on Saturdays. They have a nice selection of local produce, meat, eggs, honey and more!
