Some summer produce still at Ironton Farmers Market

Fall products are plentiful at the Ironton Farmers Market but there’s still a chance to get the last of vendors’ summer produce and a plethora of other items.

“The Shopes will have a large supply of cream horns,” Sam Heighton, market manager, said. “They went fast last week.”

Homemade candy and baked goods, honey and handmade crafts have also become a staple of the Farmers Market on South Second Street in downtown Ironton.

“If you haven’t visited the Senior Craft store across the street at the Transit Center you should,” Heighton said. “You can also have breakfast or lunch at the Transit Café that is open until noon.”

Stopping by the Senior Craft store also earns one entry into a drawing for $100 Ironton Bucks to take place on Oct. 25.

Last week’s market featured the Ironton High School Varsity Singers directed by Kathy Price.

“(The IHS Varsity Singers) never take anything for their appearances and these young kids and Kathy (Price) do this on their own time,” Heighton said. “We always have a large crowd when they are at the market and we appreciate it.”

The market is open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It is a project of Ironton aLive and Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital.
