Kaitlyn Seffernick of Ferdinand, 13, reacted after trying to pet a chicken held by Cody Goeppner of Ferdinand at the Ferdinand Farmers Market outside St. Benedict’s Brew Works on Saturday. Though she said chickens scare her, Kaitlyn was willing to try petting the bird. The market, which will be held the second Saturday of each month until November, hosted a band, local vendors and live chickens to educate attendees about growing food and raising animals. “There’s just a sense of community that comes with a farmers market that is unlike anything else,” said Goeppner, who is a farmers market committee member.
