ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Most of the old Farmer's Market property in South Albany is being deeded back to the county.

Back in the 1970's, the county gave the state nearly 10 acres on Oakridge Drive for the Farmer's Market.

The market sat vacant for years and finally closed this year.

Now, the state plans to give back all but about two acres where the building is located.

The county can use the remaining seven acres for county development, or may try to bring in a private investor.
