A new farmer's market is opening for the first time today at a Zanesville barn.

Ten local vendors have signed up to participate in the two-day event, which is expected to eventually be open to the public six days per week for nine months out of the year.

Andy Rittberger, president of Rittberger Meats, said the company renovated their barn for the event with the hope that a farmers market will help residents connect with their community's roots.

Rittberger expects the market to help local businesses save money, create jobs, and save fuel.
