Patrons of Farm Market Cafe met last weekend for what may have been the final meal of this nine-year-old eatery located just west of Hwy. 169 in Onamia–last meal, at least, under the present ownership.
Farm Market Cafe was born of the local Farmers Market and operated as a Limited Liability Company (LLC) with 10 members at the helm. The cafe, which has rented mall space from the Noblewear Company, had specialized in menus that offered farm fresh local food; featured homemade fresh pies, pastries and espresso drinks; and also sold homemade arts and crafts of the area.
Speaking about the ensuing closing, Farm Market founding member Barb Eller said, “We greatly appreciate all our loyal customers, friends, as well as our local farmers and craftsmen who have supported us over the years.”
Eller added that the cafe will remain open pending new buyers, and the planned “going out of business sale” is presently on hold.
