Polk County’s farm markets are able to operate year-round now by having a monthly indoor location in Mill Spring.

This month’s indoor farmer’s market at the Mill Spring Agricultural Development Center will be held Saturday, Jan. 29. The market will be open from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. and will feature meats, cheeses, value-added producers, crafters and an educational array of local winter produce and other edibles.

The Mill Spring Agricultural Development center, located in the former Mill Spring School near the intersection of Hwy. 9 and Hwy. 108, is the host site for the monthly indoor farmer’s market season, held the last Saturday of each winter month through March.
