WARSAW — The Kosciusko County Farmers’ and Artisans Market opened for the 2020 season in downtown Warsaw on Saturday, May 2, albeit with a few minor changes in operation.
Dozens gathered between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. to enjoy the windy but warm weather and buy essential items from more than 10 vendors while practicing social distancing and wearing masks. The market opened for the outdoor season with only food vendors in order to be in accordance with Gov. Holcomb’s current business rules due to COVID-19. Vendors included fresh produce, locally raised meats, microgreens, eggs, maple syrup, baked goods, fruit butters and live plants.
Hand sanitizing areas were also readily available at each end of the farmers’ market.
The outdoor market runs from May to October every Saturday morning in the courthouse square. The farmers’ market will make adjustments week-to-week to be in compliance with the governor’s recommendations while also waiting for the opportunity to bring the artisan aspect of the market back into the mix.
