Farmer’s Market returns for year; Port Cottages open house

Published: Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 09:33 AM.

The Barnharts, B & H Farms and Tim Corker, farmers who have long made the Salt-Air Market a place for fresh produce, will be back as will Uford Madden, “The Goat Man”, who will be bringing fresh organic lamb, goat and chicken along with goat milk and ice cream.

Parker said many other local arts and crafts vendors will also be on hand.

Saturday will also be a cause for celebration as the Port Cottages, constructed directly across U.S. Highway 98 from City Hall, will have its official open house.

The Open House begins at 9 a.m. ET and the official ribbon cutting with the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce will take place at approximately 12 noon.

There will be live music, food and refreshments.

Created through collaboration between David Warriner and the Port Inn and partners Bill Kennedy and Steve Wich, the Port Cottages are the first new development in the city in several years.

Kennedy designed the cottages and partnered with Wich to construct them as a reflection of shotgun shack-style vacation housing Kennedy had seen and studied at spots such as Steinhatchee and Alabama.
