Since the June, 2014 grand opening of The Vance County Regional Farmers Market, market goers have enjoyed a very good gravel lot. Now, the word it out that pavement is coming, and soon.
In an email from Vance County Cooperative Extension Agent Paul McKenzie, WIZS News has learned that by next Friday, August 28, a new asphalt lot should be installed.
McKenzie wrote, “If all goes as planned, our parking lot will be paved next week with NO disruption to Farmers Market hours! By Tuesday, 8/26, the contractor should have the finish grading complete. And by Friday, 8/28 the asphalt should be installed! Vendors and customers are requested to drive extra slowly on both market days next week and as much as possible avoid ‘turning the wheels while not moving’ (which we all do when trying to park!). We will send an update if the schedule changes. Thanks to everyone for all you do to make our Farmers Market great!”
