SALISBURY — The city has offered the Salisbury Rowan Farmers Market a new, temporary home in the parking lot behind the Convention & Visitors Bureau at 204 E. Innes St.

The market must move from its current location at the corner of East Bank and South Main streets to make way for the expected construction of Integro Technologies’ new headquarters in the 300 block of South Main Street, near the proposed school central office.

Plans call for the farmers market to use the temporary location in the 100 block of North Lee Street for one to two years, until the city builds a permanent home for the market in the parking lot across from the Salisbury Depot.

The market is expected to open on schedule April 20, and the new location should accommodate all vendors, a city spokeswoman said. The market’s board of directors is scheduled to vote on the proposal Tuesday night.
