The Shops at Worthington Place again has opened its doors to the merchants and shoppers of the weekly Worthington farmers market.

The first indoor market of the season was Nov. 1, when nearly 50 vendors set up booths inside the mall to sell everything from apples to zucchini, with a few unusual goodies mixed in.

The Saturday market, open 9 a.m. to noon, will continue through the winter, until the outdoor market opens again in downtown Worthington.

The winter market is much like the summer version, minus some of the vegetables and fruits. Neighbors visit with vendors and each other, and musicians play at each end of the mall.

Some vendors still offered late vegetables and some fruit Nov. 1. Radishes, lettuce, onions and squash were available.

The regular lineup of bakers and butchers were there, as well as a few new vendors, such as the farmers who grow a garden at the Methodist Theological School in Delaware. They plan to be there every other Saturday, selling such food as cabbage, turnips, honey and tomatoes.

The tomatoes went quickly Saturday, said Tad Petersen, who runs the farm.

"We got wiped out early; that's promising," he said.

Other items on the menu at the winter market are botanicals, candy, eggs, chicken, bison, pork, cupcakes, kale, maple products, preserves and jellies, salsa, dog food, tea and coffee, soap, cheese and seeds.
