Hamilton-Lauraville Main Street (HLMS) created the Tuesday Market at the Connection last season. It is the mission of HLMS to support existing business and attract new business. Local businesses were invited to take part as vendors in the market. HLMS requested a lease for the vacant lot at 4500 Harford Road. The lease request was granted, the space was available and the interest in creative use of the space was strong. A farmers’ market seemed like a great way to bring the community together. The success of the market was greater than anticipated. Now that the lease for 4500 Harford Road has ended, the market will move across the street.

We look forward to community support to keep our businesses working and strong. As a result of the visibility of the market last year, two new businesses opened on Harford Road. Numerous surveys were conducted during market hours. Many different zipcodes of attendees were recorded. Safeway confirmed a spike in their Tuesday business. Please support the Tuesday Market in Lauraville again this season!
