Eight years ago when the MCFM began, we never anticipated that the market would ever reach the size we have today, or require the space that is now needed. When we first moved to the front lawn of the Madison Senior Center, we thought we would never out grow the space or ever need another location. Boy, were we ever wrong!
Moving the market for the second time in it's eight year history took a lot more planning and time than we ever expected. We knew we wanted to stay on Hughes Road, if possible, but most importantly we needed more space for vendors and LOTS more parking. The market had grown so large that the parking shortage was creating a weekly traffic jam on Hughes Road, with so many customers parking on the edge of the road!
After spending months reviewing the area for a suitable location, we decided that moving to Trinity Baptist Church was best for the market. Thankfully, after talking with Trinity and working with them for approximately 6 months we came to an agreement just in time to move the market for 2014. We love our new location at 1088 Hughes Road, Madison, AL, as do our venders and customers, too!
Now we have almost double the parking, better access from Hughes Road and so much more room to grow! We are looking so forward to see what the future holds for the market in our new location in the years to come.
