If you close your eyes, you can almost picture it clearly: spending a morning of your vacation strolling up and down the aisles of the local farmers’ market, wearing your cutest farmers’ market hat and your most comfortable (yet stylish) shoes as you pick and choose from a cornucopia of color! Juicy red tomatoes, a homemade boysenberry jam, even a darling little pair of earrings purchased from a local artist, because everyone knows farmers’ markets offer more than fruits, veggies, and homemade goodies. These are just a few of the things “fantasy you” is putting in her stylish cloth shopping bag, and when you vacation in Branson, your dreams can come true with this list of the best farmers markets in Branson MO!


Branson Farmers Market, 100 Branson Landing

Tuesday evenings are the right time to enjoy the fruits of our local farmers’ labors. The Branson Farmers Market starts at 3PM and ends at 7PM, offering aisle after aisle of organic goodies and special treats. A balloon artist is on premises to help keep the littlest members of your party smiling, and a henna artist can help you return home with an exotic look!


Farmers’ Market of the Ozarks, 2144 East Republic Road, Springfield

The best part of any vacation is having large parts of your day free and open to do anything you please, and if you love a road trip, the Farmers’ Market of the Ozarks is open Thursdays and Saturdays and is less than an hour drive away from your Sunset Nightly Rentals cabin! Take the scenic route on the way there and snack happily on your return from your cache of home-baked treats you purchased at this popular market!


McKenna Family Farm, 3265 State Highway F, Branson

Sometimes the best farmers’ market visit happens when you actually visit the farm, and the McKenna Family Farm has been pleasing produce lovers for generations! Selling fresh vegetables (it’s tomato season right now!), farm fresh meats, and pumpkins in the fall, a visit to the farm is also a great way to show your city kids that food does NOT originate at the grocery store!


Eating Your Veggies in Style

Eating your veggies is no longer a punishment, especially when you get to enjoy them while gathered around the table of your Sunset Nightly Rentals vacation escape! Staying in a place where the tomatoes are always ripe and juicy and the broccoli never clashes with the décor is a treat not everyone gets to experience; contact us today and discover the difference all-natural makes!

Regardless of who you are, you can be sure that a Branson vacation will provide all of the opportunities to make it a time you will never forget. This is especially true for family vacations. While simply exploring the city and the beautiful areas that surround Branson provides for a great way to spend a day, you can also find many special attractions and events that make for a very special experience for people of all ages. This means families can do things together that they will all enjoy. Here are some of the best family friendly activities for your next Branson vacation.


Visit Silver Dollar City Theme Park

Of course, Missouri’s premiere theme park is the perfect place to spend a day for the families out there. You will find something for everyone: heart pumping rides for the adrenaline junkies, as well as comfortable cruises along more casual rides. But there is so much more to be found—everything from amazing live performances to delicious foods. This is perfect for virtually any family because kids of all ages can enjoy it, and it is not a bad time for the parents, either! You can find Silver Dollar City just to the north of Table Rock Lake, about 30 minutes from Branson.


Fun at the Lake

This is the most obvious of the family friendly activities in Branson as the city is home to the largest lake in Missouri, Table Rock Lake. Beyond simply enjoying the natural beauty here, there are endless ways to spend a day. Swimming, fishing, or just soaking up the sun are activities that are always readily available at the lake, but there are also many unique opportunities, like renting kayaks, speed boats, jet skis, and countless other watercraft. For an experience you will never forget, book your family a spot on a Branson jet boat ride. This exhilarating journey brings you across the lake at high speeds doing 360-degree spins, slides, and bow dunks.


Visit the Zoo

While it is not uncommon for visitors to enjoy some beautiful wildlife around the Branson area, you have amazing opportunities to see countless animals up close and personal at Branson’s Promised Land Zoo. You can see hundreds of amazing animals throughout over 75 acres of some of the most beautiful land in the Ozarks, but the real attraction here is the interaction that you will find. You will be able to pet a kangaroo, feed various animals, catch incredible shows, go on a safari, and do so much more. You can find a great time here at the crossing of Highway 76 and Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, and it is the perfect way to spend a day for even the smallest children.

You cannot travel far in Branson or the surrounding area without encountering something exciting to do with the whole family. These are some of the most popular activities for families, but you can be sure the list goes on and on. Travel to Branson with the family and enjoy the best vacation together that you have ever had when you stay in a spacious and comfy vacation rental from Sunset Nightly Rentals.
