Fairgrounds Farmers Market Lighting Project
Fairgrounds Farmers Market Closed Saturday, Jan. 9
The Fairgrounds Farmers Market closed ON Saturday, Jan. 9, while a contractor replaces the lights inside the market building. The existing fluorescent lights are being replaced with brighter LED lights that use half as much energy. The improvements are being carried out with the goal to provide a better experience for Farmers Market vendors & guests and help the market become more energy efficient.
The Fairgrounds Farmers Market is expected to reopen Saturday, Jan. 16. Market hours are from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The $17,630 project to replace the lights is the latest in a series of ongoing improvements to improve energy efficiency at the fairgrounds. A three-phase project to replace the lights in the Fairgrounds Annex commenced in 2018 and last year the high mast lights over the midway were converted to LEDs.
