HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Some changes may be coming to the Madison County Farmers Market when it reopens in the spring.

At Wednesday morning's Madison County Commission meeting, commissioners voted to open the market on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays this year.

Last spring, the commission upset many long-time vendors and shoppers when they changed the market's hours and closed it down for several weeks in May. This year, they hope for smoother sailing.

"We saw that Tuesday, Friday and Saturday were the best days, when the farmers would bring the best products. That's when 98 percent of the products were purchased," said Commissioner Dale Strong.

Strong said the commission is also looking for new management to run the market.
