MARK PROJECT helps Margaretville Market Makeover!
Thanks to the MARK PROJECT and the Town of Middletown Small Business Development Fund our Margaretville Market is getting a makeover! A generous grant award will allow us to update the McIntosh Country Market building to house our growing farm market.
New signage, paint and interior renovations will turn this flood ravaged building into a multi-business destination. Stay tuned for this season's opening and renovation sneak peeks!
