Moncus Park to begin this week

Local

Construction in Moncus park is starting this week.  

Plans to add an open air pavilion, will mean shoppers, and vendors can stay dry during rainy days. 

Brad Sonier, owner of The Rolling Pin said, “It will be huge for us.  Because regardless rain or shine, people will want to come out, so that will help out. Well when its raining, nobody wants to come out. “

Sonier told us, they have been participating in the farmers market for a year now, and are there rain or shine. 

The construction will begin behind the fenced in area.

 Holly Cope-Lynn, outreach and communications coordinator, says construction will begin this week. 

Cope-Lynn reports that the construction will not effect the farmers market hours, “The vendors will stay exactly where they are, while we are under construction. So we are going to be working on the area that is the coulee and beyond. So the farmers market can stay here under the oaks: and then once that is complete we can start on this area, possibly moving the market so it will not be interrupted.”

The pavilion will feature a classroom kitchen and restrooms. Cope-Lynn says the farmers market pavilion is expected to be complete in a year and a half from now.  

Shoppers and vendors currently enter from behind the Regions bank. Cope-Lynn says there will be a new entrance off of Johnston st. along with a new vehicular entrance to a parking lot.

The farmers market will continue with normal hours of operations, every Saturday from 8 am-noon.
