Farmers market scheduled to open on Youngstown's South Side

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Another farmers market will be sprouting in Youngstown.

During a meeting for the neighborhood around Fellows Riverside Gardens Tuesday night, a Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) representative talked about the new venture.

A Southside Farmers Market is scheduled to open in June. The venue will offer fresh produce and food vendor trucks.

Sophia Buggs of YNDC said "We'll have I want to say maybe seven to 15 vendors that are out there, all growing local, all growing sustainability and ready to put the smiles on the folks faces that are in the Idora area."

Buggs said that the market will be located on Glenwood Avenue near the new Glenwood Community Park that is between Sherwood and West LaClede Avenues.

The market is scheduled to open the evening of Tuesday June 10.

This will be in addition to the already established Northside Farmers Market.
