“We’re excited to bring back our off-season markets to the Summit on the Park” said Health and Wellness Specialist Jennifer Franz. “Our goal with these indoor markets is to create a unique shopping experience for our patrons, while supporting our local farmers and producers who help enable us to provide access to fresh, healthy food sources.”


Additional activities will be available during the February 24 off-season market, including a free kids’ craft. Marketgoers may also pick up a tasty snack from this month’s featured food truck, the Little Donut Factory, who will be onsite offering hot fresh donuts.
