Updated plans for March opening on Farmer's Market to be discussed tonight

La Mirada- A report from city staff updating the plans and implementation for the proposed Farmer's Market will be discussed by the council at their monthly study session.

The market was originally proposed to be held on Thursday, but at the urging of some community members, a community survey was conducted after receiving feedback from the community that questioned scheduling the market on a weekday before most workers returned home.

The survey results shifted plans to hold the market each Saturday from 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and to a slight change in venue to the Civic Center parking lot east of the Activity Center.

The plan has been put out to bid and a market organizer, VenaVer Events has been chosen based on its success in organizing other local markets in cities that include Norwalk, Lomita, and San Pedro.

City staff is looking at a March opening with 20 to 25 vendors on site each week.

The report notes that during the summer season when Buccaneer Bay is open the market will be suspended and shifted over to be held as the Night Market as part of the annual Concerts in the Park series because of the demands of the parking Splash! requires each summer.

The council study session is tonight at 5 p.m. at City Hall.
