If the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market on Yanceyville Street is part of your Saturday routine, that routine is going to need some adjustment for the first month of the new year.
The Greensboro Farmers Curb Market at 501 Yanceyville St., across the street from the World War Memorial Stadium, is moving for the month of January 2020 to Revolution Mill at 1601 Yanceyville St.
The building at 501 Yanceyville, which has housed the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market since 1963, will have the interior painted and extensive ceiling work done, which is supposed to be finished by the beginning of February when the Farmers Market is scheduled to return to its home.
The work on the ceiling will highlight the curved barrel ceiling by removing layers of paint to reveal the wood lathing, and the massive interior steel beans will painted to bring focus to the expansive ceiling.
The Farmers Market management expects the majority of the vendors to make the move to Revolution Mill. It’s a good time for the move since the winter months are considerably slower at the Farmers Market, but the market at its temporary location will continue to offer fresh seasonal produce, eggs, dairy, seafood, meats, baked goods, crafts and more.
Greensboro Farmers Curb Market Executive Director Lee Mortensen said, “We’re building on the synergy with Revolution Mill created when we partnered in October for A&T Homecoming and we’re looking forward to returning to a refreshed Market building in February.”
During the past four years the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market has had nearly $200,000 in building and grounds improvement including the establishment of a chef demonstration kitchen and cafe, a community education and meeting room, interior and exterior performance states and an audio and video system.
If you find that your car takes you to 501 Yanceyville Street on Saturday mornings out of habit, the temporary location at Revolution Mill at 1601 Yanceyville is only a mile north.
