Two varieties of Bluffton Farmers Market, indoor and outdoor

March 22 vendor list below

By Paula Pyzik Scott

The indoor Bluffton Farmers Market will again pop-up at the Bluffton Senior Citizens Center from 8:30 a.m.-noon on Saturday, March 23. This will be its second to last appearance before the outdoor market commences on May 4.

When the Icon stopped by the indoor market in February, it was indeed a close facsimile of the outdoor market. We found familiar faces–both vendors and shoppers–and the familiar half social, half shopping environment.

The senior center also has a variety of handmade and craft suppl items for sale.

Market manager Greg Probst will be meeting with vendors at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 4 to start planning for the outdoor market, which is held every Saturday through October in the parking lot between the Post Office and Citizens National Bank.
