Fulton Street Construction

May 20, 2015

The 2015 season has started off with a bang, and the farmers are not the only ones capitalizing on the warmer weather.  There is a construction project taking place on Fulton Street in front of the market.  As the construction changes around please remember that there is a market entrance on Fountain St.  Also if you ride the bus to the market this construction project has altered the route so please check with The Rapid for the update routes.
