Farmers Market Saturday August 3rd!

Greetings! 

I know that everyone is concerned about the construction, so I just want to confirm that two way traffic will be open throughout this project (barring two weekends TBD in the fall) so that you can still access our farmers market! Parking is tight in the event space and I am doing my best to cone off turnaround spaces at the end of the line to eliminate any congestion. Your patience is greatly appreciated (and I am always open to suggestions!).
