WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The West Lafayette Farmers Market has opened for the first time in 2021. On may 5 at 3:30, West Lafayette mayor John Dennis rang the opening bell to start the new season.

This year's lineup of vendors is the largest in the 16 year history of the farmers market. Over 50 vendors have singed up to participate.

One of those vendors is Wildcat Valley Farms of Lafayette, which is selling at the market for the first time. Co-owner Susanne Cox is anxious to start up.

"It's a nervous excitement," Cox said. "So I'm excited for people to try our product, I'm excited for people to come and support other local farmers."

Supporting local farmers and vendors is important to Cox. It's why she was a farmers market customer before she became a vendor.

"Because your neighbor down the road could be selling tomatoes and you don't know it, and they're putting their sweat equity into something they love, and why buy it in the grocery store when you can but it from your neighbor," Cox said.

Meanwhile, second year vendor Jocelyn Wallace of The Good Life Family Farm is gearing up for what she hopes will be another good year.

"We had a great first year even with the pandemic, we built a great little customer base and got to build lots of relationships and just lerned how the market works," Wallace said. "It was great last year, we're excited to be back."
