Redwood City's Tuesday night Rotary Farmers' Market canceled
April 03, 2013, 05:00 AM
Redwood City's Tuesday night farmers' market is being shelved for at least the next two seasons while the city completes the downtown construction projects that have tied up traffic and parking and closed streets.

The city and the Rotary Club tried finding an alternative site for the market which was located on two streets adjacent to Courthouse Square but couldn't find a spot that met both groups' needs. Instead, they agreed to disband the market which otherwise would have started its season in May.

"While we were not able to identify a suitable new location and deeply regret not being able to continue with our Rotary Farmers' Market, we truly appreciate the city's perspective in the need for an alternate site, and we'll continue to support downtown Redwood City and the community," said Lilia Ledesma, Rotary Club president, in a prepared statement.

City Manager Bob Bell also expressed gratitude for its partnership with Rotary and hope for further efforts.

The market launched last year to coincide with the city's "Dancing on the Square" event.
