Medina Journal-Register — Friday’s meeting of the Albion Village Board resulted in the Albion Farmers Market closing indefinitely.

There was the only vendor during the market’s first few weeks. However, according to village officials, the board was worried about the safety of residents visiting the market, as some people were allegedly videotaping the market.

Due to that and a variety of hearsay there was a lack of support for the market. Also, because of the taping, village officials said other vendors avoided the area, too.

Originally, the board agreed to the market, held on Sundays, as a way to promote business in the downtown district and perhaps lead to more stores being open.

The village might attempt to hold a farmers market next year.
