The Forecaster reports on the South Portland Farmers Market and interest in moving it to a more visible and high traffic location.
Vendors say that business at the market at Thomas Knight Park, which opened for the first time on July 14, limped along after a relatively successful first month.
Rainy weather on many Thursdays hasn’t helped, they said. But according to Caitlin Jordan, business manager of Alewive’s Brook Farm in Cape Elizabeth and head of the South Portland Farmers Market Association, the less-than-stellar turnout has one root cause.
“Like any business,” she said, “it’s location, location, location.”
