Local farmers and gardeners congregate at the north end of the main street by the fort to sell fresh fruits, vegetables, baked goods, etc. during the growing season (approximately mid-April through late October).
One great resource if you are planning a trip to Fort Scott is the Chamber Of Commerce.
It is meant to promote business but our chamber is involved in al aspects of life in Fort Scott. Their web site is a clearing house of information for what is going on.
Check the calendar of events to make sure that you do not miss something fun while you are here. Local residents use this calendar all the time.
If you are in town and have a question I recommend that you call or drop by the staff is very helpful.
They also have a small gift shop with some nice Fort Scott made products.
