Farmers market goes under cover at local church
The New Albany Farmers Market is moving indoors for the first time.
It will partner with the New Albany Church of the Resurrection, 6300 Dublin-Granville Road, from 9 a.m. to noon on the fourth Saturday of each month, starting Oct. 27 and running through Feb. 23
"We've never done this before," said spokeswoman Kristin Ferguson. "It will be the fourth Saturday for the next five months, an indoor farmers market in the Church of the Resurrection's ministry center."
Ferguson said some of the same vendors will return and new ones have been added that will sell jewelry, candles and alpaca products.
Organizer Suzanne Lucas said the following products will be available: fresh flowers, gluten-free jellies and jams, potted plants, vinegars, bath salts, pies, maple syrup, fudge, pesto, teas, coffee, muffins, cheese, scones, baked goods, artwork, relishes, salsa, dog food, pistachios, soaps and ice cream.
Ferguson said the market will continue the meal options available this past summer. The Pitabilities food truck will serve breakfast and lunch at the church building Oct. 27.
Ferguson said customers requested the farmers market continue this winter and organizers were happy to make it happen.
The New Albany Farmers Market was started by the nonprofit group Healthy New Albany.
