WILKES-BARRE — Three young men were walking around the Farmers’ Market on Thursday around noon and one of them said, “Wow, there sure are a lot of good smells here.”
An accurate assessment of the opening of the 40th Farmers’ Market on Public Square. But the smells weren’t the only things for the senses to enjoy — there were tastes, bargains, music, sunshine and fun.
“There’s lots of stuff here,” said Debbie Rutkoski of Larksville, who was on her lunch break from her job at Wilkes University. “This is so good for the downtown.
I wish there were more events on Public Square.”
Larry Newman, executive director of the Diamond City Partnership, the key downtown management organization in the city, said there will be more events downtown. He said the Farmers’ Market is the embodiment of a city’s downtown.
