For generations the Mahoning Valley Farmers Market along Route 443 in Mahoning Township was a popular attraction on weekends. Large crowds would visit the market, buying locally grown farm products, patronizing area vendors, and eating freshly made hamburgers, french fries, and doughnuts.
The market had closed in 2010 when the owner opted to retire.
Today the 35,000 square foot, landmark facility reopened under new ownership. Rebecca Santee and her father, Floyd Santee, acquired a five-year lease, made major improvements, and opened for business at 8 a.m.
