Winter Market Aims for Irish Heritage Center

The Winter Farmers Market is working with the city to get a zoning change so they can operate this winter out of the Irish Heritage Center, according to an article in today’s Press Herald.

[Councilor David] Marshall, who facilitated a meeting last month between the organizers of the farmers market and the city staff, said he expects the council to support the zoning change.

Last winter, the market operated at 85 Free St. Organizers said the space was too small and there was not enough parking for customers. “We wanted a better and a bigger space,” said Lauren Pignatello, one of the market’s coordinators.
