The Loft Cinema will add a farmers market to its repertoire starting March 16.

The market will be open from 8 to 11 a.m. every Saturday on the Loft's patio at 3233 E. Speedway.

Fresh produce from the Food Conspiracy Co-op and other local vendors and farmers will be available for customers.

There will also be activities including short films, live music and food demonstrations.

Local nonprofits will be able to promote their organizations free of charge at the market. The Loft will offer three tables each month for various organizations to use.

Vendors do not have to pay a registration fee. Instead, the Loft will collect 10 percent of the day's profit, taking a minimum of $5 but no more than $50.
