WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Farmers Markets in Greater Lafayette have been around for more than 165 years.

The community in West Lafayette will now have a chance to go to an indoor market through the winter.

The market will be here in the halls of the Morton Community Center.

It will be open on the first Saturday of each month starting in December.

This is the first time the city of West Lafayette has done this.

Quality of Life Director Beverly Shaw hopes this helps keep a sense of community as the temperatures start to drop.

"And we want people to come to Morton and see what kind of classes you can take here and you could be having a pastry and coffee while your kids in an art class or you're in a ballet class," said Shaw.

Shaw says the Morton center won't be the only winter farmer’s market location.

“The YWCA is also having one on a different Saturday of each month. So we'll have some Saturday winter markets," said Shaw.

The farmers market will be open from 9 o’clock in the morning until 12 p.m.

It will wrap up for the season at the Morton Community Center in April.
