Central Missouri Produce Auction, Inc, is a corporation owned by 28
shareholders, mostly growers. In the spring of 1994, we
constructed a new auction facility for the purpose of selling
produce, providing a market for interested growers along with a
source of fresh produce. Perishable crops are picked just hours
before the sale.
The auction is directed to wholesale buyers, such as stores,
roadside stands, farm markets, etc. But anyone that can use
produce for canning, freezing, etc is welcome to buy. There are
always some small lots.
The idea of selling produce at auction was formed by several local
growers who realized a need for a central point for growers and
buyers to gather. Also, they had observed the huge success of four
similar auctions among the Mennonite and Amish communities in
Our Mission to the Buyer is to provide first class service along with
a premium quality product.
Our Mission to the Grower is to provide a dependable wholsale outlet
for the local producers of the horticulture commodities.
