The Richmond Times Dispatch recently covered that the 17th Street Farmers Market in Shockoe will not be completed until summer’s end. This is not necessarily surprising knowing all of the delays that have already occurred this past year.
“The goal is to wrap it up near the end of the summer,” said Jeannie Welliver, the project manager overseeing the project for the city’s Economic and Community Development Department.
Welliver blamed delays on coordinating utility installation and relocation at the site, as well as bad weather that she said set the project back.
If you happened to be at the East End Festival, you saw there’s still a good amount of work to do.
