Farmers market opens Saturday



TELL CITY – Though the building has already hosted a grand-opening of sorts, Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann will officiate at a 3 p.m. ceremony Friday to dedicate the Tell City Depot. 

Ellspermann and other dignitaries will speak briefly and there will be light refreshments served after the event. 

Completed early this year and leased by the city to the Perry County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the depot was constructed with a mix of proceeds from a city Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant, forgivable loan and a separate state grant.

Mayor Barbara Ewing, speaking at Monday’s city council meeting, encouraged the community to turn out Friday to express appreciation for the building, which was built without local taxpayers’ money. 

Farmers Market Season

The Perry County Farmers Market will kick off its 2013 season Saturday in the sheltered area of the depot. 

As the News reported Monday, the depot will host local vendors selling vegetables, fruits, flowers and other goods. 

The depot’s store will be open during market hours, starting at 8 a.m. Saturday and continuing until items sell out. The farmers market will also be open every Wednesday afternoon, starting at 2.
