Officials intend for vendor to set up shop under the — currently being built — Farmers Market Pavilion at Boardwalk Park and sell homegrown produce and homemade goods directly to families, according to the release.

The Windsor Farmers Market will take place 5:30-8:30 p.m. every Thursday, from June 29 through Sept. 28 at Boardwalk Park, 115 5th St., Windsor.

Work started Monday on the new pavilion with the demolition of the former Firehouse Museum's cement pad.

The space, where an old fire department museum stood until the 2008 tornado, serves as a visual gateway to the park. If everything goes as planned, the new 84-by-50-foot structure will claim that space and become the new entryway to the park and home of the farmers market.
