There is no doubt the 2020 Market Season was a strange one, from a late start to the season, face masks, and missing our weekly musical guests, we were up against some serious barriers.
Without our supportive community, our market could have really suffered. But you guys came through every week with your support of our all-local family of market farmers, makers, and bakers. We can’t thank you enough for seeing the importance of supporting local and putting your money where your heart and home are!
One of the ways we try to show our appreciation is through The Market Store & Cafe, the hometown grocery and eatery we have created at 119 W. Sycamore Street, in downtown Kokomo that provides YOU with access to delicious, nutritious, real local food all year round, from the freshest produce, meat, milk and eggs to shelf staples like pasta sauce, granola, and flour. We also carry locally-produced soaps, aromatherapy products, jewelry and so much more. Our store does something else really important: it gives our amazing local artisans and food producers a simple, effective, and revenue-growing way to market their products all year long.
We have big things in mind for 2021, a year that will mark the 20th ANNIVERSARY of the KDFM. We’re pretty excited. If you would like to support some of our big 2021 goals (like adding a community kitchen to our growing food hub), please consider becoming a Market Member or even a KDFM Market Sponsor! We would certainly appreciate it.
We have a few great things planned for the winter, including our Vegan Friendsgiving brunch with Lucky Lemon Bakery on November 7 and our Holiday Open House (date TBD). Stay tuned for all the goodness!
