Farmers’ Market renovation update

Guelph, ON, August 13, 2013 – The City has finalized a construction schedule with Stahle Construction to complete much-needed renovations at the Guelph Farmers’ Market building.

Stahle Construction started on site construction at 2 Gordon Street on Thursday, July 25. The contractor will work with the City to complete the renovations by the week of September 9.

The Farmers’ Market vendors are scheduled to move back to Gordon Street in early September, with the first Saturday market to be held at the renovated venue on Saturday, September 14.

“Staff has prepared a contingency plan for the project,” explained Colleen Clack, interim executive director of Community and Social Services. “We will be putting ice in at Victoria Road Recreation Centre earlier than usual so that market vendors can remain at Exhibition Park Arena until construction is complete at 2 Gordon Street. Further, it will accommodate skating and hockey organizations who would typically use Exhibition Park Arena in mid-September.”

The tender for mechanical work was awarded to Beitz Construction Innovations. Beitz started on site construction of the underground sanitary system on Friday, July 12.
