What’s old is new again in College Park where the College Park Farmers Market has moved back to Infusion Tea, located at 1600 Edgewater Drive [GMap].
The popular Sunday market which had been hosted in the parking lot of Grounding Roots on Princeton Street moved to Infusion Tea on Edgewater Drive this past weekend.
The move is permanent.
Organizers Jennifer Peets and Amanda Sosa told Bungalower the College Park Farmers Market (Facebook) simply outgrew its previous location. The new location at Infusion Tea will allow for up to 25 vendors, Sosa said.
This past Sunday, the first day at Infusion Tea, vendors included Slow Turtle Farm, Azela Farms, Mercantile Coffee, City Maid Green, Orlandough and more. Each week, the market also highlights a local maker. (Next week is Freehand Goods.)
The move to Infusion Tea is actually a return to the location. The restaurant and tea house had hosted a nighttime Farmers Market on Thursdays, but stopped more than a year ago.
Peets, who owns Naked Bar Co., a soap shop in College Park, and Sosa, who owns Grounding Roots, a raw juice business, re-launched the College Park Farmers Market in January.
Peets said the new spot at Infusion Tea is “more visible and a bigger space.”
The College Park Farmers Market is open every Sunday from 9:30 a.m to 2 p.m.
Infusion Tea is currently open Sundays from 11 a.m to 6 p.m. However, those hours may change to accommodate the market, according to Peets.
