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, Feb. 19. The market is 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, is the host site for the monthly indoor farmer’s market season, typically held the last Saturday of each winter month through March. This month’s date change to the third Saturday in February is because of a Feb. 26 Marketing Conference for Farmers’ sponsored by ASAP and held at Warren Wilson College.
