Farmers market vendors and customers weren’t considered in building design

By Lethbridge Herald on October 11, 2023.


The architects of the new exhibition building obviously did not have a clue what the farmers market was about.

The main door is the furthest distance from the parking lot. The vendors’ door is on a slope that causes problems.

 Vendors have a nightmare to unload all the goods through one door before the 8 a.m. opening. 

For shoppers, with bags full of goods, its a long walk to get to your car with heavy bags. 

The glass on the “new” hospital wing, is falling off and has to have a shield around the walking space. Yet the west wall of the new exhibition building is all glass. Why can’t architects plan something that will last for years, not cause problems and need money spent for repairs? It seems ridiculous to the average person, who is helping to pay the bill.

There were a lot of factors I’m sure were considered when the 90 million expansion was designed. The fact that the farmers market wasn’t at the top of the list doesn’t surprise me and it shouldn’t surprise you either.
