Procter Center, along with the Downtown London Association (DLA), has started the Farm Fresh Market in downtown London. Since the downtown area in London is a food desert, Procter wanted to bring fresh food to those living in this area, plus encourage people to come downtown and enjoy the shops and restaurants. We are working to reenergize the downtown area and we hope that the Farm Fresh Market will be a step in the right direction.
The original plan was to test two dates this year, and go weekly next year. But the first market was so successful, it will now be held every Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. through Sept. 26. In 2019, the market will be weekly from June to September.
The criteria for vendors at the Farm Fresh Market is that whatever is sold must be raised or grown by the farmer. Stop by and see us if you are in London on a Wednesday afternoon!
