I love it when a plan comes together. One of my favorite buildings on the West Side is undergoing a complete renovation, with a mixed use live-work component as the anchor for the concept. The basement and the first floor of Horsefeathers will be dedicated to food production-sellers while the upper floors will feature 24 loft-style apartments (see more).
Besides the permanent market tenants that will be on-site on a regular basis, Horsefeathers is also planning on staging a Saturday Winter Market that is scheduled to open on January 5. The market will stay open until May 4, which is when the sellers will head back outdoors to the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market. The plan is to give seasonal farmers market vendors a place to set up shop off-season to sell in a community market setting. So far a number of businesses have already signed up to attend the Winter Market, including Arden Farms, Avenue Boys Smokehouse, Cookie Confections, Dan Tower Farm, Everybotti Biscotti, Fetch Dog Treats, First Light Farm, Green Heron Growers, Martin Cooks Restaurant, The Pasta Peddler, press raw food & juice, and Saltamontes Salsa.
*Vendors interested in participating in the market can contact Diane at The Frizlen Group at 716-881-0046 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. You can also follow the Winter Market at Horsefeathers on Facebook for frequent updates.
