A new weekly farmers market at Voyager Resort already has a couple dozen vendors, and hopes to attract more.
Every Thursday shoppers can find fresh organic produce, fresh eggs, teas, coffees, salsas, honey, balsamic vinegars, soaps, essential oils and lotions at the market, which is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Last Thursday's event at Voyager, 8701 S. Kolb Road, was the third for the new weekly year-round farmers market.
The idea is to attract visitors and entertain residents.
"The reason the resort brought in the market is for their yearly and visiting residents and to promote the (Voyager) Bar & Grill as well as the resort," said restaurant manager Lisa Wagner.
Ed Dubis is organizing the gatherings.
"The markets are a throwback to the old days, when people personally knew their produce person," he said. "Everything is more personal and fresher than you will find in the store."
The market is looking for vendors to provide fresh produce and all-natural, homemade products. To find out more, call Dubis at 603-8116.
