The indoor farmers market has a new crop of vendors. In its second year at the Shops at Worthington Place, the popular Saturday morning event has expanded down the mall and into the west corridor. The number of booths has increased from 36 to 45. Sixty vendors share the booths, rotating Saturdays.
The market is open every Saturday, except Nov. 30. New hours are 9 a.m. to noon.
Among the additions are tilapia, dairy, fermented vegetables and handmade, homegrown willow baskets.
"We're continuing to improve the diversity and variety of things people can find here," market director Jaime Moore said.
One of the shoppers on Nov. 16 was mall owner Tom Carter. Like many milling about, he came for the products but ended up staying for the camaraderie. That, he said, is what farmers markets and the mall are about.
"It's great to see the community out here," Carter said.
