Fans of the Haymaker Farmers Market won't have to wait long for its vendors to return following the end of its summer season.
The market's last official day on Franklin Avenue is Saturday, but the Winter Market series starts just one week later on Saturday, Nov. 3.
Junction 211, at the corner of Cherry Street and Franklin Avenue, will serve as home for the market through the winter months. It also will serve as the home of the Haymaker Holiday Markets.
Marketing and aquaponics consultant Paul Meyers founded The Junction Project in 2011. Its goals are to promote entrepreneurship, education and enlightenment, according to Meyers Linkedin profile.
This winter, Haymaker Farmers' Market officially becomes a year-round market, open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., through May 18. The market will be closed Dec. 22 and Dec. 29 for the holidays.
