Farmers Market Opens During Winter Months

Parke County Farmer’s Market is switching up their location for the winter season, holding a market inside the Rockville Presbyterian Church. Abigail Lapp, the new director, said that they’d tried to have an indoor farmer’s market a few years back, but this was their first time doing it consistently through the season. One of the Presbyterian Church board members was a regular at the farmer’s market, and as soon as she heard they were interested in doing a winter market, she offered the space to Lapp.

The farmer’s market has between 10 to 15 active vendors who participate every week, along with additional vendors who come when they can. Vendor applications for the winter market are currently open with a lower fee than in the summer to give vendors a chance to test it out and gain customers. Lapp said that their ultimate goal at the farmer’s market is to have even more vendors join their team for the summer.
