Granger Farmers Market announces new location, expansion
The Granger Farmers Market has found a new home. Starting June 3, the big white barn on 12650 S.R. 23, Granger, will be the new location for the market. The move will also bring new local food producers, homestead arts and crafts, classroom space and room for tents outside, according to a press release.
In mid-April, the South Bend Tribune reported that the market planned to move from its location at 12435 Adams Road at Bittersweet Centre. Lydia Karacson, market co-founder, cited limited space and economics as factors in the decision to find a new home for the independent “farm to fork” market.
Karacson said in a press release that the market has noticed an increased interest in local foods, and the expansion shows that there’s a deep interest in healthy eating choices.
The market is currently accepting new food producers and artisans at grangerfarmersmarket.com.
The market is currently open from 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. From May until September, the market is open until 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
