According to a release sent out yesterday, 2012 was the Melrose Trading Post's best year ever. Due to increase in demand and an uptick in oh-so-stylish shoppers, they upped the number of vendors on site from 180 to 240. Now, they've unveiled plans to expand the market's food court.
The expansion will include more tables and benches, a picnic blanket seating area and a new live music stage as well as more food and drink vendors including "local tea service guru" Adam Yasmin of Sacred Teaometry. All of these improvements will debut on Sunday, November 4th with a blowout party featuring a performance by The Dustbowl Revival.
