State Farmers Market Restaurant scheduled to reopen Saturday, March 14
RALEIGH – The State Farmers Market Restaurant is scheduled to reopen Saturday, March 14, following a two-month repair and renovation project.
The project involved repairs to the kitchen walls, drains and floor, plus work on heating and air-conditioning ducts. A new cooler and freezer were installed, and the flooring in the dining room was replaced.
Gypsy Gilliam has operated the State Farmers Market Restaurant since 2002. She leases the space from the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which oversees the market.
Gilliam said visitors will notice some changes when the restaurant reopens. Patio seating will be available, and the restaurant will be open for dinner on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
