The Downtown Beaufort Farmers Market is back Wednesday, May 16, and will run every Wednesday from 3 to 7 p.m. through October 31st.

This year they may move from the small Freedom Park to a new location — that's up for a hearing at Tuesday's city council meeting.

The Island Packet talks a bit about the change over here.

Glad to see the change, I've been hoping for years that they would move the market closer to the heart of town.

Update: The market is now closed for this season, but it sounds as though the new location was a hit.

The Island Packet's Erin Moody writes that merchants say business was up and shoppers loved the free parking space.

Until May 2013 ...
