Vote extends Naples farmers market for 1 year

Published: Updated:

NAPLES, Fla. – The fate of the Third Street South Area Association’s farmers market has been decided… at least for another year after city council unanimously voted to extend it Wednesday.

The popularity of the farmers market among residents was apparent in the more than 1,000 emails city council members said they received. Those emails were pressing council members to keep the farmers market open despite pushback from local businesses. About a dozen business owners asked the city council to intervene because they said the farmers market hurts their profits.

But a vote from the council means the farmers market will continue for another year on two blocks of Third Street South.
