Buckley Market vendors provide plenty of variety

The new Buckley Public Market has taken a broad approach to attracting customers, billing itself as a grocery store/farmers market/indoor street fair.

The new business, housed in the building that was long home to Rose’s IGA and now part of Mr. Bill’s Plaza, is the brainchild of owners David Wells and David “Bubba” Johnson.

The location boasts a selection of fresh produce (some organic), some basic grocery items, owner-operated bakeries and specialty foods. Visitors can also browse through soaps and lotions, collectables, trinkets and more.

Adding to the mix are creations by crafters, photographers and other artists, all found in 11,000 square feet of space.

The year-round market will take a seasonal turn late in the year, with a six-week holiday market that spans the last half of November and all of December.

The market is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day of the week.
