The Village of Homewood Winter Indoor Farmers Market will begin its second season in a new location and with the addition of hunt and gather vendors. 

Bedding plants were already 
available at the February 2015
session of the indoor market.

The market will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Marie Irwin Center, 18120 Highland Ave., on the last Saturday of the month from January through April.

"We are so pleased to offer the market again this year in a new location and with new vendors," said Kate Duff, Homewood's farmers market manager. "This is a wonderful way for the community to meet out when the weather isn't always the greatest. We are especially excited to add the hunt and gather vendors to the lineup this year. We received such positive feedback from the 2015 indoor market that we are happy to expand for 2016."
