The city of West Carrollton is seeking vendors for a new Farmer’s Market planned for 833 E. Central Ave.
The vacant lot, formerly a McDonald’s restaurant site, is owned by the city. “We’ve received several requests in the past few years from residents who were interested in a local market for fresh fruits and vegetables,” said Brad Townsend, city manager.
“This seemed like the ideal location because it’s easily accessible and has right the combination of green space and pavement for parking,” he said.According to statistics from the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, about 13,000 vehicles pass the site each day.
The market will begin on May 28 and continue through October - open each Tuesday from 3 to 7 p.m.
“With our newly improved interstate access at Exit 47, we are excited to be able to showcase our community as well as provide fresh fruits and vegetables to our residents and visitors,” Townsend.
Prior to participation, vendors will be required to file an application permit, as well as pay a fee of $175 per 22-week season or $20 per week. The deadline for application is April 1.
Vendors, who are interested in more information, can contact Erika Mattingly, public relations coordinator, at (937) 847-4634 or e-mail ">.
