The market starts next Thursday and we're ready for you... but the new lot is not. The paving of the new lot will be done on June 9th and will be ready by the 2nd day of the market on June 12th.
Not to worry.
On June 5th we will open in the lot just West of the new lot. It's not pretty but it's right next to it so you can take a look at the new lot at that time and we can talk about any special needs you have for placement in the new lot on June 5th.
Please come to the market on June 5th at 1:30 for a 15 minute market meeting and placement in the temporary lot.
Thank you for understanding. I think it will be worth the wait.
