Largo's Open Air Market May Close

Largo's Open Air Market could close due to low attendance, said Largo Community Center Recreation Program Manager Warren Ankerberg.

Largo's Open Air Market may close due to low attendance by patrons, although no decision has been made yet, according to Largo Community Center Recreation Program Manager Warren Ankerberg.

"If people want the market, they need to come down to it," Ankerberg said.

Largo has a "very, good market in that we have a lot to offer ... People need to come out in the hundreds and buy stuff. The produce is outstanding," Ankerberg said.

Ankerberg confirmed a relocation to Ulmer Park had been discussed, but that decision isn't on the table, he said.

The market is open Saturdays in the Largo Community Center parking lot from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Advertise more and state where you are, these are two big problems..(what street & side streets) I personally was unable to find you since I had never been to that park.....GOOD LUCK..

I agree with Jeanette. Advertising and specific directions are necessary. Flyers, signs, ads in local papers, Brighthouse has a program highlighting area events.. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising..SPREAD the NEWS!
