CAMDEN — Vendors from Knox and Waldo Counties sold items ranging from organic vegetables to brick oven pizza Saturday, Aug. 20, at the Camden Farmers’ Market on Washington Street, but some said the operation would be moving in coming weeks.

Work to remediate the contamination at the former tannery site where the market has been held is planned and the vendors expect to move to the middle school in coming weeks.

According to town officials, the plan is to temporarily move the market to the Rose Hall parking lot next to the middle school.

Town Manager Audra Caler said beginning Monday, Aug.22, the remediation of the tannery would begin and will take 3-4 weeks.
