Vendors at the Farmers Market in Downtown Roanoke are hoping for a strong summer after some difficult years.
The two year construction project revamping Center in the Square proved costly for these vendors as customers began finding alternatives to Market Square.
But with Center now re-open and a few shops beginning to move in, businesses like Sumdat Farm Market are cautiously optimistic.
"I really hope that people will come back down realizing that the construction is done and they can come down at will just like they used to," said Annette Fleisher with Sumdat Farm Market. "We do all we can to get farmers in."
Next week we'll tell how Fleisher helped find unique ways to keep the Sumdat running while dealing with years of construction and the recession.
