Cville Council Hears Suggestions for Improving Farmers Market

Posted: Updated:

Some major improvements could be on the way for the Charlottesville's farmers market. 

Thursday night, City Council met with a group that has been working for months on ways to improve the Charlottesville City Market. The group presented two options: keep the market in its current spot on First Street with upgrades or move the market one block south to Garrett Street to allow for more growth. 

The group says both options would improve the market and increase economic development in the city. 

"People love the market; they want the market to not be harmed in any way. That's a very important part of our work is to understand the market, who the customers are, what the farmers need," said Ted Spitzer, president of Market Ventures Inc. 

Council is expected to make a decision about the market in early September.
