William and Mary Alice Stokes, owners and operators of Isbell Valley Quality Produce, started their farm in Osage County in 1997.
They have been regulars at the Columbia Farmers Market for all of those 19 years, bringing their tasty gooseberries, rhubarb, asparagus, and blueberries to the loyal community of market-goers.
They choose to sell at the Columbia Farmers Market “because it is a large market, so we are able to sell what we grow,” said Mary Alice. “It is very satisfying to us to be a part of the American food producers chain. We enjoy the challenge of growing our products, and the satisfaction of serving our customers.”
