SoPo Farmer’s Market

The Press Herald has published an update on aspirations to move the South Portland farmers market to Hinckley Drive.

On Monday night, the City Council could end a long and contentious discussion about the future of the market.

The council is expected to vote on a plan to move the market to a spot on Hinckley Drive, adjacent to Mill Creek Park, and close part of the street from 2 to 8 p.m. every Thursday, said City Manager James Gailey. Vendors hope the move will give them more visibility and attract more customers and vendors.
