MOUNT CARMEL — The Wabash County Farmers Market had a successful return on Saturday, even selling out of most of the produce within a half hour of opening.

"It's really busy and it's beautiful weather for it," organizer Brittany Campagna said Saturday. "We have a lot of vendors today, which is great because I thought we were only going to have six."

Several vendors from last year are back, including master gardener Nan Adams, Haleigh Buchanan and Casa di Campagna. Out of the ten vendors present, there were a few newcomers, including Innotations, a Mount Carmel business that is known for its laser-cut wood signs, and Ken's Cookie Jar.

Products sold Saturday varied from potted plants, fresh produce, coffee grounds, handmade items and baked goods. Certain produce will vary from week to week as things come into season, Campagna said.

Any interested vendor can participate in the Farmers Market for a cost of $5 each time, or no more than $25. No pre-registration is required, just show up and the information booth will direct people where to set up shop.

The Wabash County Farmers Market will be held at the Tenpins parking lot every Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m. throughout the summer. For more information, find the Wabash County Farmers Market on Facebook, or visit wabashcountyfarmersmarket.com.
