The first-ever Verona Lions Vendors Market kicked off last Saturday with 10 vendors and they already have 11 confirmed for the next one in Feb. 23. They have markets planned for March 23 and April 17 as well.
The markets run from 8 a.m. til 2:30 p.m. and lunch is available at the Lions canteen.
“When the weather warms up, we’ll probably move outside,” said Lions spokesperson Dorren Morey. “The canteen will likely stay indoors though.”
With the canteen on the premises, one of the regular features planned is the Desert of the Day.
This month it was apple cookie crisp tarts. Next month, it will be funnel cakes with strawberries and ice cream.
“Funnel cakes are a big seller,” said Joyce Casement, one of the organizers/desert cooks.
“Because it’s February, the strawberries look like little hearts,” said Morey.
