The Carmel Winter Farmers Market opens early this year. Our Winter Market vendors asked us to move the Winter Market closer to the closing of the Summer Market, which ends this year on September 30.
Heeding the call of our vendors, there will only be two weeks between the close of Summer Market and the opening of the Winter Market on October 21.
Moving the opening date is one of two major changes we have made. The other is that we have moved the location of the Market, again at the request of our vendors, who wanted a location that was more centrally located. The Market will now be located inside the old Woods Wire factory, 510 SW 3rd Av. Just look for Carmel’s newly painted mid-town water tower. We will be right across the street from that.
Besides being in the center of the City, the “Wire Factory” location has made it possible for us to expand the Market. In fact, the number of vendors has almost doubled from our previous location at Founders Park.
One thing will stay the same. That is the hours. The Market will be open every Saturday, 9 to noon, from October 21 through February 24. The only exception to this is that the Winter Market will be closed the last two weeks of December.
