It’s about to get easier to buy local in Franklin County. Farm to You Market opens at 5025 Old Highway 100 in Washington on Wednesday, April 13, with a grand opening to come May 6 and 7. A longtime vision of farmer and co-owner Todd Geisert, the market will stock the usual grocery store suspects (like meat, eggs, cheese, produce, dry goods, seasonings, wine and beer) but the offerings will be primarily sourced from vendors in a 200-mile radius of the store.

More commonly known vendors like Companion, Midwest Pasta Co. and Todd Geisert Farms will be featured alongside lesser known purveyors like Giofre Apiaries, which makes honey ice cream.

Geisert is also working to connect the various vendors to use each other’s products in their own offerings. For example, rice produced by the McKaskle Family Farm in Braggadocio, Missouri may make its way into Thompson Farm’s soup mixes. Todd Geisert Farms’ bacon is included in Giofre Apiaries’ honey ice cream.

More than a market, the space includes the Barn Yard Cafe, a 40-seat space that shoppers can use to enjoy a sandwich from the deli or reserve a seat for the planned monthly dinners featuring chefs like Ben McArthur of J. McArthur’s and Chris Bork of the upcoming Vista Ramen.

Farm to You Market will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.to 4 p.m. Here’s what to expect when the doors slide open Wednesday.
