SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Sarasota Farmers Market Board of Directors has decided to stop all operations of the market until more funding is obtained.

According to a press release from the Market’s Executive Director, these operations include laying off of three employees, closing the office, all social media accounts and discontinuing assisting other non-profits.

“I want to thank John Moran and Roger Barry, who have been sending me information on the stimulus, and I will get this information to our Board of Directors,” the Sarasota Farmers Market Executive Director said. “It’s a tough time for everybody, but the market will be back in full swing, hopefully, before you know it.”
