Co-owners Stu and Barb Holaway and Kent and Gaye Yoder bought the popcorn plant hoping to bring together producers of locally grown quality produce and consumers looking for fresh and organic local produce. The Yoders are certified Indiana Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners.
The open air market will take place, rain or shine, underneath a large sycamore tree that sits on the property, surrounded by pine and fruit trees.
“We will also have local handmade crafts. We have both Amish and English vendors,” said Stu Holaway.
Vendors include Miller Produce fruits and vegetables; Graber Foods breads and baked goods; Uncle Ed’s herbs and flowers; Glory Gardens hanging flowers, fresh flowers and perennials; Marja Sue Creations designer hand bags, and Lisa’s Healthy Kitchens. Other vendors will also offer fresh produce.
The Mill Stream Farmers Market, 402 E. Warren St., Middlebury, will be open from 7:30 a.m. to noon every Saturday morning until Sept. 7.
