Produce Auction
Jamesport is home to the North Missouri Produce Auction. This is the place to come buy or sell farm fresh produce, bedding plants, pumpkins, fall decorations, potted mums and natural grown produce. The North Missouri Produce Auction is a partnership owned by a number of local shareholders who constructed a new facility in Jamesport for the purpose of selling produce. Perishable crops are picked just hours before the sale.
This auction is directed to wholesale buyers, such as grocery stores and farm markets, but anyone who can use produce in boxes or flat lots for canning, etc. is welcome to buy.
Live Music
On Saturday's in Jamesport, you can usually find live music! There is a local band with a hammered dulcimer, guitar, mandolin, and mountain dulcimers that play old-timey music. They are a fun bunch and draw a crowd with their music and laughter! Its a great time! They play from around 1 - 3 pm onSaturdays. You can find them outside next to the Farmhouse Collection downtown when the weather is good, or inside DeVaul Fine Art when the weather is cold or rainy. Stop by and see them! Tell them you read about them on the Internet, they will get a kick out of it!
