RALEIGH, N.C. — Commissioner Troxler will talk about the long-range plans and improvements highlighted in the State Farmers Market Master Plan, addressing concerns that the market needs to be saved from development.
Thursday, Dec. 12
State Farmers Market Administration Building, Conference Room
1201 Agriculture Street, Raleigh
Signs around Wake County about saving the State Farmers Market from being closed and converted into luxury apartments and townhomes have caused questions and concerns from shoppers and farmers. There are no plans to close the market. A Master Plan developed for the State Farmers Market includes long-range proposals focused on enhancing the market experience for shoppers and for the farmers who sell their fresh fruits, vegetables and meats. These plans could be 30 to 50 years away from happening.
