Market’s season successPublished 9:45am Wednesday, October 23, 2013
With the Ironton Farmers Market set to wrap up for the 2013 season this Saturday, the offerings that this brings to citizens to purchase locally grown products is a key element to the success of this project of Ironton aLive.
Not only does it provide fresh food grown here at home, but it also helps local farmers and producers have an alternative avenue to sell their goods.
During the 2013 season, the market was available to customers on Fridays and Saturdays, but this type of project is something that could grow by leaps and bounds.
That should be the focus of the organization during the course of their winter planning session.
With the rising costs of production and distribution, customers should look at these local markets as an alternative source where they can purchase various produce items along with other offerings such as honey, jellies, and jams.
We commend all of those involved in the creation and continued development of the local farmers markets in the Tri-State that provide a valuable service to our communities.
