Farmers Market moves indoors for month of November

The Boyne City Farmers Market will move indoors this year for the first time. Vendors will offer the seasonal produce, meats, cheese, baked and canned items, honey, maple syrup, and other goodies you've come to expect from the market for a trial period during the month of November. Starting Nov. 7, the market will be open in the heart of downtown Boyne City Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 126 Water St. (formerly Kiss Carpet). The Farmers Market is leasing the building from Dr. Dennis Kirkby. Although he hopes to fill the vacant space more permanently, Dr. Kirkby is excited about the project. If the market goes well and enough interest is generated among those hungry for local food and the vendors who provide it, there may be the opportunity for the market to continue beyond November. The market hopes to attract shoppers from Boyne City and surrounding communities where markets have ended. The second annual Holiday Farmers Market will also be held in the indoor Water Street location on Wednesday, Nov. 25. The Farmers Market is a project of the Boyne City Main Street Program. For more information about the market or becoming a vendor, call Market Manager Jen Lewis, at 420-0996, or the Main Street office at 582-9009.
