Two produce auctions have opened in Missouri this year with regular hours and auction dates. And two started last year (Barton County Produce Auction and Leadmine Produce Auction, which is just south of the Lake of the Ozarks in Hickory County). So in just two years Missouri produce auctions have increased from 5 to 9. Here is the basic information about the two new auctions.

The Highway 60 Produce Auction replaces the "occasional" one that ran last year. This one caters to the A Highway Amish in Webster County (county seat is Seymour), but is open to all growers. It is about 7 miles away from the C Highway Produce Auction (which opened in 2008).
When: The auctions are held Tuesdays and Fridays in June, July, August, September and October. Auction start time is 10 a.m.
Where: Located on the north side of Highway 60 halfway between Diggins, MO and Seymour, MO. The 40 ft. x 60 ft. building enclosed on three sides (open to the south) is adjacent to the Tool Store.
