Winter Indoor Market being hosted by The Old Royal Inn

Thank you to all of our loyal and new customers alike for supporting the Mineral Point Market and its' vendors over the last 6 months. We look forward to seeing you under the WaterTower again in May.

In the meantime - many of the same vendors will be moving indoors for a market hosted by Mark and Jennifer Bendorf, owners of The Old Royal Inn, downtown Mineral Point beginning:

Saturday, October 24th and every Saturday through December.
Hours - 9:00 a.m. to noon.

You have come to love Mark's bakery products at the outdoor market so make sure to continue that enjoyment at The Old Royal Inn's indoor winter market. Mark will continue with his beloved cinnamon and pecan rolls, cookies, croissants and of course the "made to order" egg omelet sandwiches. Jennifer says they will be adding homemade breads as well to their product offering for the indoor market. Last but not least on these cold mornings - the full bodied brewed coffees will be ready and waiting.

Just a few of the other vendors making the transition indoors this week are:

We will be at the winter market this week with a nice selection of storage crops like - onions, carrots, turnips, and beets. Plus there are still some things coming from the fields outside: leeks, kale and radishes.
thanks Rink
