However, with the exception of one vendor offering organic bath and body products, all the rest only offer organic meats and produce and various food products.The good news doesn’t end with the market’s products. The location offers plenty of advantages for shoppers and vendors alike, too. There’s ample parking space and it’s open all year round. Because it’s near a shopping center, there’s plenty of shelter and the market rarely gets cancelled due to bad weather.Did we mention that it’s an all-organic market, too?
