The farmers market has been traditionally held in the Synovus parking lot which left the market susceptible to inclement weather conditions. Parking and accessibility has been an issue as well, since the market and vendors took up most of the parking.

Fans of the market are going to love the new location and the feel of the market. The former 7,000 square foot warehouse has been completely transformed into a beautiful, functional space that will not only house the market, but will be available to be rented by the community for meetings, civic and family events.

According to Willow Farmer, Market Manager there will be around 40 to 45 vendor spaces available. 23 of which will be inside the building, 11 under the awnings of the building and 5 outdoor spaces.

They have negotiated a parking agreement with the Quality Inn hotel for vendor parking and with Southern Palace Chinese Restaurant and Queensboro Bank for overflow patron parking.
