Idora farmers market open for business

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A grand opening was held Tuesday afternoon to celebrate the start of a new farmers market in the Idora Neighborhood on the city’s South Side.

The market is at the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Sherwood Avenue. More than 10 stands were set up with plenty of fresh items.

It is a place to get farm-fresh products and people also can get plants and seeds so they can grow their own produce.

“They seem to be expanding a lot in our area at least. There is the B & O Station, the market that started there a couple years ago and now there is this one. It has been growing a lot. I see a lot of new people at the markets every week,” said Rick Price of the Iron Roots Urban Farm.

The farmers market will take place every Tuesday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. through September.
