The new Mesquite Farmer’s Market continues to bring in vendors and visitors despite the triple digit numbers we’ve all been feeling on the Friday nights in the past couple of months.

This past Friday, July 23 if you happened to be driving down Mesquite Blvd between 4 and 7 p.m. you were likely to have spotted the founder of the market himself standing out there waving a big red arrow directing you into the parking lot where you would have found plethora of stylish, whimsical, wearable and edible treats from vendors as near as Mesquite and as far as California.

Other vendors like the Hammons family freely hand out samples of their sweet, unfiltered, raw honey from the Hammons’ hives located in the Overton/Logandale area. The honey is available in pint and quart sized jars as well as still on the comb.

Their Facebook page tells local customers what types of honey are presently available or will be in the near future such as Mountain Flower or Orange Blossom honey which they’ve just recently harvested.

Joshua Hammon also offers public services such as removal of hives and bee rescues and is available within the hour in most cases to safely remove any hives from your property. For more information on bee removal you can contact Joshua Hammon at 801-529-7562 or email Hammons Honey at HAMMONSHONEY@HOTMAIL.COM.
