SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Spokane Public Market is closing its doors in March due to financial difficulties.
Spokane Public Market Chairperson Torie Foote announced Friday the last day of business at the market would be March 7.
“The market fell victim to a stagnant economy affecting vendor booth participants, public [and] municipal funding and customer traffic and can no longer operate due to existing financial burdens,” Foote said.
Foote also said the market’s board was thankful to supporters including vendors, local business owners and building owners for their efforts throughout the three years the Public Market was in operation.
The public was invited to visit the market during its final days while vendors offered special deals.
The non-profit group that runs the Spokane Public Market tells KREM 2 News they planned to meet to discuss relocation if possible.
