At a meeting on May 3, the Farmers Curb Market Committee within the Lakeland Downtown Development Authority made the following decisions:
1. Effective immediately, the Farmers Curb Market is discontinuing Wednesday operations. The Saturday Market days will continue from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. For about two years, we tried to make the Wednesday Market work, but we were not able to have enough customers to keep vendors happy and not enough vendors to keep customers happy. We feel that this is the right decision at this time to concentrate our efforts on continuing to make the Saturday operations successful!
2. Due to popular demand, the Farmers Curb Market will stay open in July! Last year, we closed for two months in the hottest part of the summer, but this year, we will close only in August.
As always, we thank you for your continued support of the Lakeland Downtown Farmers Curb Market!
