Farmers' Market news: roads closed between east and west
There is more big news about this year's market that I didn't put in the print story: street closures!
Marketers will be able to move back and forth freely between the east and west markets this year. Here are the details:
Parts of Hillen and Holliday streets will be temporarily closed on Sundays for the duration of the market from April 3 to December 18, 2011. The 600 block of Hillen Street and 300 block of Holliday Street will be closed from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pleasant Street and a part of Hillen Street, near the market, are accessible. Drivers can use Guilford Avenue as an alternate. Some parking restrictions will be in effect.
Meanwhile, the Anne Arundel County Farmers' Market opens this Saturday for its 30th season, and the Silver Spring Freshfarm Market has its official season opener this Saturday. If you go, know that there's a different location this Saturday only -- Gateway Plaza at he corner of Georgia Avenue and Colesville Road.
