Rain doesn’t deter Katz Midtown Market launch

Karin Velez of Wolf Creek Family Farm greeted shoppers at the new Katz Midtown Market Saturday. She said her produce is already sold in Midtown at Nature’s Own Health Food Market and Conveniently Natural. She’ll be joining other vendors for the new market on the first Saturday of each month.

Despite a steady rain — the first one in a long, long time — the Katz Midtown Market drew vendors and a steady stream of visitors on Saturday. The new community-building market is a project of Redeemer Fellowship Church at 3921 Baltimore. Redeemer’s Chris Gorney said several vendors canceled due to wind and rain, but Redeemer decided to move the entire market indoors. And this could be a good thing going forward, as future markets can be held in the large interior of what used to be a drug store.

Many in Midtown will remember the entrance to the former Osco Drugstore at the corner of Westport and Main. On Saturday, the gutted space became home to a monthly market for local merchants, farmers and other vendors.
