Sadly, this year we were not allowed to return to the Community Market of Blacksburg. No explanation was given as to why and we were not told until Wednesday, three days before the first market day. We fall within the mileage distance to vend at the market and we turned in our application before the deadline. We really do not understand what would cause them to deny our application.
What makes this even more painful, is that we supported the market and the management throughout their battle with the town council over the zoning issue. We used our Facebook page to help get the word out and drum up support for the market during that time. This has been a hard pill to swallow for us.
