The strange turn of events last week that saw a luxury car crash into the Montgomery County Farm Women's Market building, led to an indefinite shuttering of the structure. A Mercedes Benz remained lodged in the market's exterior wall last night.
Earlier Saturday, the market opened with vendors set up outdoors on the property.
The market released the following statement:
"Unfortunately, the Farm Women's 'Inside Market' is temporarily closed for repairs. Join us for an 'Open-Air' Market! Most every vendor will set up a stand outside as weather allows. Fresh croissants, cheese, flowers and much more... In true 'Farm Women' fashion, we turn lemons into lemonade... Fasten your seat belts and grab a scarf..."
I guess the "fasten your seatbelts" line is showing that they've maintained a sense of humor despite the possibility that the historic structure could be condemned.
The market is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with an additional Outdoor Bazaar on Sundays. Of course, it will all be outdoors for the time being, until inspectors can determine the future of the building.
