Knowlton Public Market To Be Re-Located

The popular public market in Knowlton, which is on Maple Street and has been for the last several years since opening, will be moved to the site of the old Town of Brome Lake Municipal Garage. The Town has decided not to sell the land where the garage has stood and instead will use for the public market. The site is on Mont Echo Road just over the creek and should make a nice site once the land has been thoroughly decontaminated. Years of use as a garage and waste dumping facility have meant the decrepit old building currently on the site are on land that is well soaked in oils, PCB’s, lead and other toxic elements that would need to be removed prior to being declared safe for the embarkation of organic carrots and potatoes. A timetable for the clean-up and move are not yet known.
