(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A bit of normalcy for the southside Saturday as an annual farmer's market returned this year.

Yesterday was the first day for this year's Southside Farmers Market, the start date was pushed back a few weeks due to COVID-19.

The market is put on by the South St. Joseph Development Corporation, which did make some modifications due to the virus.

Handwashing stations were on hand and signage reminded guests to practice social distancing.

Organizers say despite this year's challenges they remain optimistic.

“To me, this was the real test on how people were going to respond with the pandemic,” South St. Joseph Development Corporation Project Manager Martha Drannan Clark said. “I think it’s just going to continue to get better.”

This was the sixth year for the farmer's market, and even though they said the turnout was light Saturday, they expect more crowds.

The market runs every Saturday from 8 AM to noon now through September.

We have had rain off and on this Saturday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours but should start to clear up as we head towards the morning. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
