Fresh look at Earthworks

PLYMOUTH — Earthworks market reopened Tuesday morning after a being closed for two weeks.
The market was closed to allow staff time to do some rearranging, reorganizing and get ready for new product. The market is more self-serve friendly now making it easier for customers to access bulk and/ or refrigerated items. The bulk selection will be expanded to include a larger selection of items.
New items have also been added to the shelves as well. New pastas and sauces are in stock and more coffee and tea flavors will be coming soon. There are food items, quilts, soaps and lotions, baked goods and the ever-popular handmade Earthworks bread.
Kelly Payne, a Culinary Pastry Chef student at Ivy Tech in South Bend, is spending some time at Earthworks baking before starting her last bit of school. The practice Payne will gain from the market will be good for both Earthworks and Payne.
There’s always a surprise treat to be found at the pastry counter. On Tuesday that was an upside down plum cake.
The reopening of the market brought forth a very busy day for staff.
“We’ve been super busy,” said Rebecca Tepes, of Earthworks. “People have been very understanding and so supportive of us through everything.”
Friends Janice Eberly and Angi Beyler met for lunch at Earthworks. It was the edamame salad and multigrain bread that Eberly missed. The ladies are frequent visitors to the market.
Earthworks Market is located at 900 W. Jefferson St in Plymouth. The hours are Tuesday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
