A Farmers Market in Boyle Street

The farmers market in Boyle Street on May 18. Paula E. Kirman

The area was abuzz for weeks with the news that the Downtown Farmers Market was moving to 103 Avenue and 96 Street, with a year-round indoor home in the former GWG/Army & Navy/Red Strap Market building at 10305 97 Street.

The market is open both Saturday and Sunday. As of June 15, the market will be located in its traditional 104 Street location from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. On Sundays, the market will be outside on 103 Avenue from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Renovations continue at the building, which is intended to be the indoor location throughout the year.

Here is a look at the grand opening in Boyle Street on May 18, filled with vendors, food trucks, buskers, and, of course, shoppers. It was a lot of fun, and definitely a positive development for the area.
