A special use permit to operate a farmers’ market on the Hillermann Nursery & Florist parking lot has been approved.

Washington City Council members voted unanimously Monday night to grant the permit following a public hearing.

There were no objections to approving the permit.

Sandi Hillermann McDonald said the proposed market will be open on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Depending on how the operation goes, she said the plan is to have the market open all year.

In an earlier article in The Missourian, Hillermann McDonald said the plan is for the market to open this Thursday and Friday.
