The fourth and final of the EcoSociety winter/spring markets takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hart Hall (501 Carbonate St.). After this event comes the Nelson Garden Festival on May 7 and then the opening of the 2016 Cottonwood Community Market which starts up on Saturday, May 14 at Cottonwood Falls Park.

EcoSociety markets and events director Jesse Woodward said that “these winter/spring markets were an experiment to see if there was a public appetite for off-season markets and there definitely seems to be. The public seem to really love supporting local farmers, artisans and crafts people all year round and it is that kind of support really helps the local economy flourish.”

Bring your family and friends and come enjoy this event. Over 25 vendors will be selling everything from arts and crafts to jewelry, eggs, local meat, and fresh baked goods. A $2 donation is being kindly requested at the door to help EcoSociety cover the costs of this indoor markets.
