Glendale Downtown Market on Hiatus
Downtown Glendale Association board has accepted the recommendation of the market manager and will take a holiday hiatus for the Downtown Market effective immediately.
Rick Lemmo, president of the DGA, said that the start of construction on an adjacent street would adversely affect the traffic to the market, which is located at 200 N. Maryland in the parking lot of the First Baptist church. The DGA plans to assess all options and suggestions throughout this coming winter season and reopen a new and improved market in spring 2015.
Lemmo thanked the market operator, Carole Gallegos, and the dozens of merchants who came to the market each week.
Among the DGA’s many activities are the hiring and supervision of the Downtown Glendale ambassadors who clean the streets, and decorating the downtown corners for the fall and holiday seasons.
