Proposal to Move Farmers Market
(2008-01-15)
(WOUB) - Tentative plans call for the Athens Farmers Market to move from its present location to the Community Center sometime this year.

And while all the details have not been worked out, officials are moving ahead with a proposed Public Market Pavilion.

That includes seeking state grant funds which Councilmember Debbie Phillips says would be used for planning.

The ordinance moved through Phillips' Planning and Development Committee last night and is headed for first reading next Monday.

Pavilion planners have already lined up some construction grants, but that was before University Mall officials told the Farmers Market it had to move from their East State Street site.
