Due to a lack of funding and manpower, the Capital City Farmers Market will hold its last indoor market Saturday.

After operating out of 130 E. Dunklin St. since May, organizers plan to revert back to an outdoor market this spring, according to a post on the market's Facebook page.

Missy Creed, a vendor at the market, confirmed Wednesday the last day for the market is Dec. 15.

Diana Duncan, president of the Capital City Farmers Market board, did not return the News Tribune's requests for comment.

The farmers market will be open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. today and Friday, as well as from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday.

Organizers settled on the East Dunklin Street home of the former Welcome Inn Again, after its initial plans to operate out of the 22,000-square-foot former Blattner Building fell through.

Formerly known as the Downtown Farmers Market, the market sought a permanent indoor site after it moved between several outdoor sites over the years.
