Year-round farmers market set to open in January

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A new year-round farmers and craft goods market is set to open in the east in the new year.

The Farmers and Makers Market is opening at 716 Dickinson Ave. in uptown Greenville, inside the old Chero-Cola bottling facility.

Vendors will be able to rent shelf, floor or wall space to sell everything from house plants to produce, meat, books, candies and artwork.

"I think a lot of people are looking for this type of opportunity," owner Ryan Webb said.

The starting cost for vendors is $15 per square foot per month and the individual spaces won't have to be staffed the way they are at a traditional farmer's market.

Webb said the market will focus on local products made or grown within 50 miles and 20 vendors have already signed up to participate.

The Farmers and Makers Market is scheduled to open in January 2019.
