Three new vendors will be on site tonight: Atom Acres, Kings Cottage, and Urban Grow.  The market has been a well-attended event since its inception.  Look for continued addition of vendors and an increased variety of veggies, fruits, jams, jellies, and preserves.  And, who knows what else one might find to carry home for mealtime treats!

Don’t let the cold and snow of our Hoosier winters deter you from attending.  After all, we are used to this!

Every Tuesday from 5:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m. at 719 Union Street in historic West Central.

BEET STREET JUICERY UNIQUE TREAT FOR WEST CENTRAL

The Beet Street Juicery has opened at 534 West Berry.  Sherina & Nathan Collier wanted to establish a business centered around nutrition assistance and education and dedicated to Sherina’s father who passed away from cancer in March 2013.

The idea turned into reality after successfully crowdfunding via Kickstarter through a month long campaign to meet a $6,000 goal. After much planning and the successful interest in the business through Kickstarter, Beet Street opened in late November of 2014.

Stop in to welcome the owners of this new business. West Central is quickly becoming the place to locate small, cozy businesses that so many incoming residents desire to frequent.
