The Wednesday Market is open for business

The County has given us an extension to keep the Wednesday Market open through March 31st of 2018. This will give the Civic Association time to work on a new lease for the remainder of this year and beyond. According to the SABCA President Bill Jones there is still much work and persuasion to be done. “It is our goal to keep the Market at Pier Park. This is where our organization started the Market 19 years ago. The community, our visitors, and our vendors love the location and we still maintain that closing or moving the Market will not solve the County’s revenue shortfall or the parking challenges at the beach,” Jones said. “It is imperative that the community call members of local and county government and let them know the Market is vital to our community’s quality of life and identity.” Please reach out to the County Commissioners and tell them you support the Civic Association and want the Wednesday Market to stay at Pier Park. Here’s how to reach the decision makers;
