SPECIAL NEWS

OPEN on OCT 17

YES! The Market will open on OCT 17 for the last day of the 2018 Season.

Please post lawn signs this Wednesday.

The repavement of the Church's parking lot has been finished. On Tuesday morning, the construction crew applied the last of the pavement near the garages.

Final layer of pavement applied near the garages.

Preparation of the ground was critical for the new parking lot surface. Late last week, laying of a new foundation included digging up the old, crumbling one..

Old concrete removal.

On Monday, the new foundation was installed.

New foundation of gravel and chipped stone.

The weather cooperated and the new asphalt pavement was applied on Tuesday.

The last stage of surfacing.

The vendors will set-up a bit closer to Monroe Avenue to avoid damaging the newest pavement near the garages. Cones will identify areas which must remain off-limits for another day or two. Parking might be a little tight. Driving on the parking lot will be restricted. Please be patient and careful!
