Apples, biscuits free at market

Farmers donate produce for special Saturday event special 

At the Ironton Farmers Market this Saturday Ironton In Bloom will give away fried apples over hot biscuits.

“Apples are donated by the market vendors,” Sam Heighton, market manager, said. “They will serve from 10 a.m.-noon.”

The market is fully stocked with fall items and some summer produce is still available. Homemade baked goods including cream horns, candy, pies, bread, cookies and honey are available.

The Senior Craft Store is open 9 a.m.-noon during the Market season in the Transit building. The Transit Cafe is open from 7 a.m.-noon and serves breakfast and lunch.

“Spend your morning and enjoy the friendly atmosphere at the market, the craft store and the cafe,” Heighton said. “The cafe has great coffee.”

From 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18, the Lawrence County Bicycle Giveaway Street Fair will take place on Bobby Bare Boulevard in conjunction with the farmers market. The fair features live bands, inflatables, a car show, crafts, auctions, an ATV raffle for $5 per ticket and much more.

Nearly 250 bicycles were given away last Christmas and all proceeds from the Street Fair are used to fund the giveaway.

Lawrence County Bicycle Giveaway organizers John Dickess and Don Schwartz said this year’s goal is 350 bikes.

The farmers market will be open regular hours, 7 a.m-3 p.m. and still offers all products usually found at the market.

“The vendors welcome the Bicycle Giveaway Street Fair and support the project,” Heighton said.

The Ironton Farmers Market is a project of Ironton aLive and sponsored by our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital. Call Sam Heighton at 740-533-7951 for vendor information.
