Farmers' Market to Open

The downtown Farmers' Market at 8th and Ohio reopens Tuesday, May 17 at 7:00 AM. Hours will be 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Tuesday - Saturday.

Buying local produce means your food is fresher and picked at the peak of ripeness. Local produce also travels much less between farm and table, reducing carbon emissions.

I know where I will be heading many mornings after my early morning walk with my friend, Sara! I hope to see many of you there.
