The group that pioneered the annual Pearl Alley farmers’ market Downtown won’t be part of it next year.
A long-simmering dispute over the location of produce and merchandise booths came to a head last week when Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District said it will replace the Pearl Alley Growers’ Association with its own group of farmers.
Those who are part of the growers’ group are welcome to join the new one, Capital Crossroads director Cleve Ricksecker said in a letter to the farmers.
