Spokane Public Market opening postponed

Wed., May 25, 2011, 1:11 p.m.

The new Spokane Public Market has postponed its opening a week due to road work downtown.

The market, at 32 W. 2nd Ave., will open June 2, the nonprofit organization’s board announced today.

The city is rebuilding Second in front of the market, between Division and Browne streets. That stretch of the Second Avenue project is scheduled to be completed next week.

“We have been anxious to finally open the doors of the market to the public, but felt that the construction would make it difficult for people to access the building and the parking lot,” said Kay Stoltz, president of the Spokane Public Market Board of Directors.

The year-round market will have vendors offering fresh produce, meat, baked goods and locally made crafts.

It will be open Thursdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Free parking is available to visitors with purchase.
