It’s a farmers market with no strings attached — and it’s been a place as long as anyone can remember. The Glen Rose Farmers Market, on the downtown square, was likely first organized in the early days of Somervell County. When the Glen Rose Farmers Market got its start, it was a common idea in many counties to have a central location for farmers to bring their produce to sell their produce. Everybody gathered on Saturdays. The farmers market predates the city.
