Thursday Market Night to be re-introduced as a Saturday Morning Market:
On April 14, 2022, the Parks and Recreation Commission formed a subcommittee to discuss the re-opening of Market Night and at their May meeting, the subcommittee recommended that Market Night be reintroduced with some modifications. These modifications addressed limited staffing levels as well as a transition back to full operations.
On June 7, 2022, the City Council voted to form a subcommittee to discuss the recommendation of the Parks and Recreation Commission for the reopening of the market. The subcommittee recommended that the Market be re-introduced as a Saturday morning market rather than an evening market to better complement the downtown businesses and current staffing levels.
Beginning in 2023 the market would operate on Saturday mornings along with the City’s Certified Farmers Market. The market would be held from 8:00 to 12:00 p.m. during the spring, summer and fall seasons and include approximately 100 vendors. By combining these events the City is utilizing resources and staff time that currently is being applied. In addition, the downtown businesses and community is familiar with existing operations. The market would also lead to reformatting polices and guidelines to include higher quality merchandise or artsy products.
