What happens if it rains?The market operates rain or shine. That said, it it up to each vendor to decide if they will participate on any given day. The vendor selling soap isn't likely to be there on a day when heavy rain is forecast. The market will not run on days of exceptional weather - hurricane, gale force winds and the like; on days like that check this web site or our Facebook page for details
Where will customers be able to park? Parking for all Farmers Market customers is along Sonny's lane.
Why isn't the market on Saturday? A good deal of thought went into the decision to hold the Farmers Market on Tuesday. If the Tantallon Farmers Market existed in splendid isolation then indeed Saturday would be the preferred choice. Alas, the Tantallon Farmers Market does not exist in splendid isolation and Tuesday was chosen to avoid having to compete for customers and vendors with the Seaport and Hubbards markets. The Tantallon Farmers Market runs from 2 PM to 6 PM so people will be able to attend the market after work.
