Milk House Farmers Market opens in Mills
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Milk House Farmers Market opened in Mills in mid-January.
“I felt like there needed to be more yearly farmers markets, you know, where people could go every day rather than just seasonal,” said Milk House Farmers Market Founder Maureen Cherry.
Cherry took inspiration for the farmer’s market from similar markets in Gillette and Sheridan. The market will allow vendors to drop off their goods without having to stay and sell their products like a traditional farmers’ market.
The Milk House will mainly offer food and produce options, but they are happy to create space to sell other goods as well. She is excited to offer an alternative option for buying groceries.
“We’re more focused on food, but we do like to see the local homemade products as well,” said Cherry.
So far, Cherry says customers have been excited to have a local market option. The market is growing and wants to continue bringing in more vendors and options. In the weeks the market has been open, they have grown from two vendors to almost twenty.
“It’s grown tremendously, we’ve got eighteen vendors here now, so it’s pretty awesome,” said Cherry.
The market is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. They are planning to host a grand opening in the spring.
“We haven’t done an official grand opening, we’re gonna wait till warmer weather for that so we can get outside vendors here too,” said Cherry.
The Milk House Farmers Market is located at 67 S. 6th Ave in Mills. The market shares a building with Ghost Town Canvas Shop but has a separate entrance on the side of the building by the bay doors.
