Landrum Farmers Market opening early and indoorsPublished 5:17pm Thursday, April 4, 2013
Emily Annas wants to draw Landrum area residents’ interest in local produce now, not just when warmer weather brings thoughts of vine-ripe tomatoes.
“I want to eat local year round and I’m hoping other people will too,” Annas said as she explained why she’s worked to launch a winter/spring farmers market this weekend, April 6 inside Ken’s Fine Meats and Seafood downtown.
Landrum’s farmers market typically opens in June along N. Trade Avenue. Beginning this weekend, through the end of May, it will be held in Ken’s from 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. The market will return to its outdoor location this summer and run through October. During the fall and early spring the market would be held indoors if people get on board, Annas said.
“All of the jams, jellies and cheeses that people make for the market would make great holiday gifts as well so we hope this would work in the fall too,” Annas said.
