Farmer's Market at the Arcade

When: Fri., Dec. 17 2010

If you can't imagine a holiday feast without at least a few locally grown ingredients, today's Downtown Farmers' Market is for you. Launched last summer on Public Square, the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. market moved indoors to the Arcade in November. Today's crop of local farmers and producers is expected to offer a lineup that includes fresh fruit and veggies, cheeses, eggs, meats, maple syrup, salsas, preserves, pierogi, and more. The move indoors is a boon for buyers, but it also helps vendors by establishing a reliable year-round outlet. "As the small, sustainable farm movement grows, it is vital for the farmer to maintain consistent and constant market opportunities," says Kevin Leamer of Por-Bar Farms. "It's even more crucial for us during the late fall and winter seasons where presently very little market opportunity exists." Keeping that ball rolling is a win-win situation for everyone. You'll find the market inside the rotunda area of the Arcade near the 401 Euclid Ave. entrance. For more info go to — Cicora
