Lovers of the farmers market need not despair this fall. As other markets close down, the Medina County Farmer’s Market moves indoors for the cold weather.
About 30 vendors will meet at the Root Candle Community Room at A.I. Root Candles, 623 W. Liberty St., Medina, on Saturdays, according to Susan Hirsch with the Medina County Department of Planning Services.
No market will be held this Saturday, but there will be markets 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 13 and on Dec. 4, 11 and 18.
During the annual Candlelight Walk on Nov. 20 and 21, the market will be open noon to 9 p.m. Nov. 20 and 3 to 7 p.m. Nov. 21.
Hirsch said the market was open in the same location during last year’s Candlelight Walk, but this is the first time it will be open for multiple dates in the fall.
“It’s really only a fall location. Right now we’re seeing how it goes,” Hirsch said.
There will not be as much produce, although some farmers do have greenhouses, Hirsch said, but there will plenty of baked goods, jams and jellies and crafts.
On Nov. 13, the band Beatniks and Politics will be at the market to perform acoustic versions of music by Bob Dylan, the Beatles and other artists. Hirsch said they will try to have some form of entertainment on each market day.
“It’s very much going to depend on the success,” Hirsch said of extending the market into the winter. “We’re getting a lot of vendor interest,” Hirsch said, and now they just need customers.”
