VAN WERT — On June 7, the Van Wert Farmers Market, located at 500 Fox Road, opened the 2014 season, which begins the 41st year for the market.

The cold ground, wet conditions of this spring delayed the planting of many vegetables. The market on Saturday had only two vendors: Marsh Foundation and Windmill Acres. Available on Saturday were kohlrabi, strawberries, green onions, mixed leaf lettuce, head lettuce, kale, spinach, Swiss chard, herbs, vegetable plants and flowers (hanging baskets).

The market is open from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. This Saturday, June 14, will be the third session of the young season. At several times during the 2013 season, the market had 10 vendors selling home-grown produce and home-baked goods. Possibly available Saturday will be green onions, kohlrabi, mixed lettuce, head lettuce, kale, Swiss chard, herbs, vegetable plants, jams.
