ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany community market is finding success back at its old stomping grounds.

Twenty six vendors set up in Tift Park on Saturday.

They said the crowds were bigger and better. 

This was the second weekend back in Tift Park since January. 

Straight line winds destroyed parts of the park pushing the market to a small parking lot across the street. 

The move meant almost half the amount of vendors could set up. 

Vendors said this past weekend was a big success. 

They said it's great to be back 'home.'

"There's something to be said about being under the trees and in the park and people strolling through," said Kathleen Stroup. 

Stroup sells homemade jellies and jams at the market. 

"It's definitely not as hot as being on the concrete, so it was really pleasant to be back in the park," said Stroup. 

Market organizers said they hope more vendors will start to come back in the coming weeks.
