Sanford to Get Second Weekly Farmers Market
A new farmers market is in the works for Sanford.
An 8,000 SF building on the site of the historic Sanford State Farmers' Market will undergo cosmetic renovation to become a food-only produce and vegetable weekend farmers market according to Growthspotter.
The City is considering running a trolley to connect the market to downtown as the building is only a mile away at 1400 French Avenue (MAP).
The renovation is expected to be completed in May.
According to Riches, the building sits on a historic site of the original Sanford State Farmers' Market founded in 1934. It was created "to provide a central location in which farmers would sell their produce directly to consumers."
