I’ve been driving by this sign for a week or two now, and finally had a moment to ask about it at Parks & Rec. Unfortunately for people who liked the Friday Farmers Market at the American Legion, this is not a third Farmers Market. It seems that that one hadn’t been doing as well as the Cold Spring Park one, and some people from West Newton (I don’t know who you are, but thank you!) asked if it could be held in West Newton. Businesses in the vicinity were okay with the idea, so it’s being moved to Elm Street. Literally. It’s not going to be in this vacant lot that I wrote about awhile back; they’re going to close Elm Street between Washington Street and Border Street. And it will be on Saturdays instead of Fridays, 10am-2pm, from July to October, so it will be an option for people who work weekdays.
And another reason to visit West Newton Square. 🙂
