Elmwood Farmers Market News
The KICKOFF for the 2021 Farmers Market is this Saturday!
A pre-season opening will happen on May 1st in coordination with the Bess Streeter Aldrich House Plant Swap.
Saturday, May 1st
8:00 - 12:00 pm
The vendor list is growing and there will be a wide selection of various food, drink, gifts, and crafts.
Fresh asparagus will be available, perfect for grilling, sauteeing, stir fry, salads, pickling, or maybe wrapping in bacon.
Do you love biscotti? Well this is "magic" biscotti. A ONE-second dip in coffee or tea and it transforms into a tasty tender morsel that melts in your mouth.
This Lavendar hydrosol is produced in Murdock Nebraska. Come to the Farmers Market on Saturday and learn how to use this natural product.
Look Look, we have Elmwood Farmers Market bags too!
They are only $15, and two dollars from each purchase goes back to the Farmers Market for future supplies.
These will go fast! Pick yours up on Saturday.
There is still room for MORE VENDORS - No fee, no mandatory number of times to set up.
Join Linda Glantz of Murdock Recalls Rte 66
Linda Glantz recalls her memories and travels on Rte 66
Last Friday Linda Glantz recalled her travels on Rte 66. It was entertaining, informative, and fun. Who longs for the day when you just went on a road trip through all the Main Streets of America. A time before "boring" interstates, when we connected with people.

The "Pie Ride" is coming to Elmwood this summer.
Marie Gregoire has organized a new event for Elmwwood. For those that are familiar with the Nacho Ride to Eagle - same thing, only we will feature pizza and dessert pi!
"Pie" - Pizza and Dessert Pie.
The C Store and Quonset will sell pizza slices and local civic groups will sell dessert pie at the Park Gazebo.
1st & 3rd Thursdays
June, July, August
The Nacho Ride has brought economic development to Eagle. We even see riders in Elmwood Taco Tuesday is the BEST in Elmwood!!
Many of you probably don't realize how big this really is, but bike tourism is HUGE. The MoPac trail is part of the ride across America program and every week I see bicyclists in town visiting the C Store, taking a photo by the mural, or stopping by the Farmers Market on Saturday morning.
Since this is our first year we don't expect the same high numbers as Eagle. But, her organization has a grant to promote this for our community. More details will be coming later.
Bike Share in Elmwood Nebraska
In coordination with St Paul Methodist Church, United Methodist Health Fund, Hutchinson, Kansas, and Bits & Pieces five bicycles are available to check out (just like a library book) and ride around town, to the park, or on the trail.
- To check out a bike, you must sign a waiver. General bike share program rules-
must show a drivers license at check out
- 12-17 can rent bikes with a parent at check out. Parents take full responsibility and sign a waiver for their child.
- The bike is due back by the next Bits and Pieces business day. Plans are in the works to get a key dropbox. (Stay tuned.)
- The condition of the bike is checked at check out and when it is checked back in
when you check out a bike you are responsible for the bike. Any damage will result in a fee.
failure to return the bike by the due date will result in the suspension of your ability to check out bikes.
- No holds/reservations on bikes will be allowed
- We do not provide helmets. You can bring your own helmet to use while riding the bike.
- Have fun!!!!
Funding for this project was provided in part by the United Methodist Health Fund, Hutchinson, Kansas.💗 About 30 people attended the official ribbon cutting on April 12th and I was even the first person to check out a bike. It's easy and once you are registered you just add the next date and time to the notebook.
The Elmwood Library is open. Regular hours with just a few adjustments for social distancing.
