ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Folks at Tift Park Community Market are already looking ahead to their fourth season.

On Saturday vendors finished up their nine-month selling season at the market.

Despite the strong January wind storms as a set back Vendor, Kathleen Stroup said the community came together like a big family.

From March to June vendors relocated to a parking lot across the street, but were back in the Park in July once safe to move back after the damage was cleaned up.

"By using the park every weekend as a park, we are able to promote its use by people and ensure that it stays here. And it's a beautiful park," said Stroup.

Stroup said she had a strong selling season for the two years she's sold at the market, but said some vendors were impacted by the summer relocation.

Now she hopes next season is prosperous for all vendors.
