The market has called GL Heritage Brewing Company home for the last two seasons and re-opened for the 2022 season on the grounds of the agricultural-based, family run brewery at 8728 Howard Avenue.

Approximately 20 vendors hawked their wares – everything from fresh produce to baked goods to handmade crafts — Saturday, while couples and families strolled the grounds.

Organizers say there are more than 60 full- and part-time vendors signed up for the season.

The brewery opens at 9 am, each weekend, and partners with a different local food vendor.

The market is open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm, through the fall months.

Applications for market vendors and local charities are still being accepted.
