The Weston Farmers’ Market will be moving, according to their Twitter account. They announced today that they “Just received great news. We will be moving after 30+ years to the main streets of Weston road in the new GO STATION parking lot.”
Your humble correspondent has asked for more details but he has time to write now while the family is asleep.
A new Farmers’ Market was supposed to be a fixture of the John Street development and the Artscape Hub. There had been plans to add stalls to the new market, but vendors were worried that there would not be enough space for trucks to unload produce.
The farmer I spoke to last week hoped that this would happen. I’m less enthusiastic. The new GO lot is not as pedestrian-friendly as the old one is (the considerable troubles caused by construction aside). The move will, however, bring good food closer to an area of high density homes of lower-income residents.
