Market Debuts on Riverfront

By Nicole Tull

HomeTown Market in Logansport has begun. It will run for 6 months on the riverfront. Every third Saturday vendors will be peddling their wares. Homegrown produce vendors are highly encouraged. It can be fresh or preserved. Jams, jellies, and salsa was the feature this past weekend but pickles and vegetables in mason jars are also desired by customers. Dehydrated spices and herbal teas could be featured. Local honey items would be great.

Homemade items are in high demand as well. Leatherwork wallets, purses, keychains, and earrings were featured this past weekend. There were also kitchen items that were available. Sewn bowl cozies, towel boas, bag holders and potholders.

It is a farmer’s market, so let’s see some farm items like baby animals. Chickens, ducks, guineas, and turkeys are popular. Farms also have plants. Maybe you have an abundance of flowers, herbs or bushes needing to be thinned out and could sell. Fresh eggs are found on a farm. If you missed getting some on Saturday, you can plan on seeing them again.

Crafter’s market is the other part of this event. Folks would like to see woodwork pieces, painted items, home décor, handmade jewelry, hand crafted cups and t-shirts. Maybe you have a hidden talent that you like to try out on the public. Booth rent is pretty cheap for the duration of the market making it a tempting time to see what folks will buy. The Logansport Chamber of Commerce oversees this event, so contact them for more information.
