Last Sunday was the last day at the Downtown Farmers Market for the 2019 season.
The main reason for closing the market was due to low customer turnout. The market has been struggling to keep the participating vendors at the market.
In addition to the low turnout, the parking lot where the market was happening, will not be available due to the impending new City Hall Development. The construction will continue for at least 2 years.
The Downtown Farmers Market started its operation in 2011. A City committee used to run the market in the beginning. City staff later on took the responsibility of managing the vendors and its operation until now.
We want to thank its many friends for supporting our Market this year and look forward to seeing you at the other College Park Farmers Markets, including the Hollywood Farmers Market in north College Park.
