No Move Necessary
(2008-02-18)
(WOUB) - The president of the Athens Farmers Market says the group has signed a lease with the owners of the University Mall.

Ann Fugate says it's a month to month agreement that, for the first time, includes a payment.

She would not say how much.

Up until now, the Athens Farmers Market used space at the Mall rent free.
Fugate said Monday the lease -- for the foreseeable future -- removes the need to relocate.

Farmers Market and city officials recently had been planning a move to the Athens Community Center because the University Mall had other plans for the space being used by the Market's vendors.
