MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Officials in Vermont’s capital city are making changes to the farmers market that begins this weekend.
The Montpelier City Council voted in January to close State Street for the market to make it pedestrian-friendly and to attract more visitors. The move was supported by the Sustainable Montpelier Coalition.
The Times Argus reports officials also voted unanimously to change the layout of tents, placing them back-to-back to address business owners’ concerns.
Montpelier Fire Chief Robert Gowans says the department will work around the market format to ensure safety. The farmers market will take place May 5.
