DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The traditional outdoor farmers market officially opens at the 2nd Street Market, Saturday, June 7.

The market, located at 600 E. Second St. in downtown Dayton is adding six produce vendor and one prepared foods vendor to the Market’s more than 40 year-round indoor vendors.

The outdoor vendors that will be at the Market are:

  • Garber Farms
  • Gypsy Chick Farm
  • Hungry Toad Farm (organic)
  • Keiko’s Kettle Corn

The Market is also introducing three new Saturday-only vendors:

  • Oaked & Smoked will sell its packaged, frozen smoked salmon at the market starting June 7.
  • Simply Sweet will produce handmade ice cream on site on Saturdays beginning June 7.

“The 2nd Street Market helps Five Rivers MetroParks serve as the region’s conservation leader by providing our community convenient access to local food, which is less taxing on the environment and often healthier,” said Market Manager Jimmy Harless. “These new vendors will give our customers even more options for stocking their kitchens with locally grown and produced food. Many people know the 2nd Street Market is a great place to grab lunch and shop for gift, household, food and other items – and they are having a positive impact on our region’s natural heritage at the same time.”

The 2nd Street Market is open Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
