Open House October 31

The Downtown Farmers' Market season is drawing to a close, and we salute Main Street Wooster and especially all the farmers, bakers, craft sellers, and other friends for another great year!

But the end of the outdoor farmers' market season doesn't have to mean the year's end for good local food. Why? Because we have the news you've been waiting for... Local Roots is almost ready to open!

On Saturday, October 31 -- the final day for the Downtown Farmers' Market -- Local Roots will hold an open house from 10 AM to 3 PM. Come and get a tour of the building, sign up for membership if you haven't already, and join us for coffee, hot cider, baked goods, and maybe even some good local music after you've stocked up on good produce at the farmers' market.

As we head into November, Local Roots Market will first look like an extension of the Downtown Farmers' Market, with producers setting up their tables and selling their goods individually. Once we have final approval from the Health Department, we will also have the online order system up and running so that cooperative members can order online and producers can keep their foods safe in in-house coolers or freezers.

(Remember, we'd love to have you join us! If you haven't signed up for membership yet, we'll have information and forms on hand on market days.)

November will be a busy month with other special events -- a film series and a holiday market -- so stay tuned for more news!
