I’ve been reading through vendor applications for the coming season. Nearly everyone is returning and I hope to add a few new vendors. Our market space is pretty full in the summer but with creative space management, I think we can carve out one or two more spaces. I’ll be announcing the lineup in a few weeks.
See you tomorrow,
