ROME N.Y.- There is a new way this year to get out and buy local in Rome.
Every Wednesday from 4:00 pm-7:00pm, St. John's Lutheran Church on West Chestnut Street in Rome is holding a farmer's market.
There are soap vendors, meat vendors, produce, honey, woodworking, some crafts, and food trucks.
This was the fifth week the church hosted the farmer's market.
Mike Garrett, the Coordinator for the St. John's Lutheran Church Farmer's Market says every week there is something new to come and check out.
"There isn't any vendor that stands out." said Garrett. "Gypsy Girl was new last week, Old time was new this week, (and) next week we've got Nothing Bundt Cakes out of New Hartford. They're going to have a booth here. So, I think the draw is just people getting out and coming to qulity vendors and shopping out here." Garrett added.
The market is requiring those who attend to wear masks.
Traffic through the market is one way.
The market is following all the social distancing guidelines.
It runs Wednesdays from 4:00pm-7:00pm through October 7th.
