WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Farmers Market typically runs for six months beginning in May and ends in October. But for one last Wednesday in November, vendors set out their fresh produce.

The West Lafayette Farmers Market held their special day-before Thanksgiving market from 3-5 p.m. Wednesday.

Locally grown produce and baked goods were on sale, but there were also special holiday gifts to choose from as well.

As always in Indiana, the weather is unpredictable. But that didn’t stop marketgoers from coming by one last time for 2016.

“I think people know what to expect when we plan for a market the Wednesday before Thanksgiving,” market master Paul Foster said. “There could be snow, it could be rain or it could be terrific. The weather has been great [in the past]. So we all just buck up, and make up our minds to have a good day.”

The West Lafayette Farmers Market will open again in 2017 beginning Wednesdays in May.
