Newark, Ohio Courthouse Repairs And Canal District Farmers Market Opening

Licking County Courthouse renovation and construction.

Licking County Courthouse undergoes renovation.

Construction began this week on the Licking County Courthouse. There are  many other improvements being done in downtown Newark, Ohio.

The first fully completed project will be the Canal District Farmers Market, a big win for EBT card holders as so much of the farmer’s market has been dedicated to their needs. This will be a welcome addition to an area with so many on the EBT system looking for ways to convert their taxpayer provided EBT food budgets into more than just what local grocers offer. There will be a token system in place that will allow EBT credit to be freely traded in creative ways at the market.

The market will provide an easy way for Canal Market District vendors to collect on the EBT system without the usual accountability procedures that restrict purchases at common retail outlets. The simple application process described on the Canal District website will be helpful for any vendor looking for an added revenue stream.

The community continues to look with wonder as each new phase of the downtown projects are revealed.
