Farmer's Market needs new location | Home & Garden
SALISBURY - The City of Salisbury, along with Downtown Salisbury, Incorporated and the Rowan County Convention and Visitors Bureau are leading efforts to establish a new permanent location for the Salisbury Rowan Farmer’s Market.
The farmer’s market, which currently operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays (7:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) on the corner of South Main and East Bank Streets, resides at the same block where future parking for employees housed at the new Downtown Central School Office has been proposed. Wednesday market hours would be impacted if the market continues operating at the currently location, after construction of the Central School Office is complete.
Staff members from partner organizations are working with the Salisbury Rowan Farmer’s Market Association to identify funding and resources available to assist in establishing a new permanent location and to develop a plan that will ensure continued success of the farmer’s market in the downtown area. Those involved in the process, hope to have a solution in place prior to the start of next market season, which begins in April.
Community Planning Services Director, Joe Morris states, “It is vital that we include stakeholders who have been instrumental to the market’s success thus far in the development of a new plan and permanent home for the Salisbury Rowan Farmer’s Market. We are excited about the partnership established in this regard and for the future of the market. “
The Salisbury Rowan Farmer’s Market, established in 2004 has been operating at its current location since its development and has been a crucial component of various health and wellness efforts and community wide designations, such as the City’s recent designation as a Gold Level Fit Community.
