According to a social media post from Doran’s Farm Market, the central Ohio farm will shutter its market in less than two weeks.

“We will be closing the market permanently after July 18. Thank you for 50+ years of Doran’s Farm Market,” a statement from Doran’s social media accounts reads.

The market, which is located at 5462 Babbit Rd. in New Albany, first opened in the 1970s, when farmer Jim Doran began selling farm-grown produce out of a wagon in his front yard.

While the long-standing market will be closing, according to Doran’s post, the farm and farmers themselves will remain, and are planning to “use the farm in other ways.” The statement noted to “stay tuned to find out possible ways  enjoy the farm in the future.”
