THE MARKET AT LWR TO DEBUT NEW TIME, DAY, LOCATION
The Market at Lakewood Ranch, the community’s popular farmers’ market, will debut its new time, day and location for its third season. The Market will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday, Nov. 3 through April 26, at the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center.
The changes in time and day were selected to enable folks to visit who were already out and about in the area, said Monaca Onstad, director of community relations for Lakewood Ranch Communities. Lakewood Ranch Medical Center was chosen due to its convenience, at the heart of Lakewood Ranch, across from Main Street, and closer to I-75.
“This market season will be bigger and better than ever!” said Morgan Bettes, manager of The Market. “In addition to shopping local, the community can enjoy complimentary yoga by The Yoga Shack each Sunday morning, as well as a range of other activities throughout The Market’s run.”
You’ll still find the same great vendors at The Market as well as several new ones. Numerous products will be available from more than 60 vendors, including produce, dairy, eggs, fresh bread and baked goods, honey, spices and rubs, coffee, flowers, mushrooms, fresh pasta, guacamole, jerky, and more. Prepared foods such as empanadas, tacos, and pizza will be available to take home. There will also be lotions, candles, soaps, succulents, jewelry and art, as well as services like knife sharpening.
The Market will offer culinary demonstrations, morning yoga, live music, and activities for the kids. Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee has been selected as The Market’s non-profit partner for the season. Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate. Monetary donations are, of course, appreciated.
Onstad emphasized the importance of community support in making The Market a success. “We will continue to create a vibrant market experience,” she said, “but it is vital that the community shop The Market vendors to help it thrive.”
