  • Farmers market staying at Plaza

    Tri-County Farmers Market announced on radio Wednesday that the farmers market would move its Saturday selling location back to Sixth Street and University.

    Not so fast.

    Jarrod Phillips, manager of the farmers market, said Thursday that the market will remain at the Plaza Park on Saturdays for the remainder of the season.

    Phillips said the regular market vendors are unhappy because they don’t feel the city has lived up to its agreement. The market moved Saturday’s location to Plaza Park earlier this year.
