MERRIMACK – The Merrimack Farmers Market is moving to a new location on Wednesday.

The market, which is open from 3-6 p.m. Wednesdays through mid-October, will move to the parking lot at Vault Motor Storage, 526 Daniel Webster Highway – the former Zyla’s discount warehouse. The hours and days of operation will remain the same.

Organizers of the farmers market, operated by volunteers under the auspices of the Merrimack Agricultural Commission, said the new site offers easy access from the highway and a more visible presence to passersby.

The farmers market formerly operated in the parking lot at The Commons shopping center, 515 Daniel Webster Highway.

Drivers seeking local goods contended with a turn at a traffic signal, a drive down a hill and a turn into the parking lot near Tractor Supply Co.

Once the maneuvers were accomplished, marketgoers could patronize the 15 or so vendors.

Bob McCabe, of Merrimack, a volunteer manager of the farmers market, said the new location will be more convenient.

“We told all the vendors about the move,” McCabe said. “We also alerted more than 400 customers, and asked them to come to the new site and enjoy the corn, the lobster, the soup, the cheese and our local tomatoes.”

McCabe said the lot at Vault Motor Storage is sure to attract more customers because of its size.

In addition, there will be room for local organizations, including the Merrimack Dog Park Committee, to have information booths.

Charlie Morgan, owner of Vault Motor Storage, said he is excited about the relocation of the farmers market to his property. Vault Motor Storage offers indoor storage of autos, motorcycles, recreational vehicles and boats.

“My wife and I are always looking for fresh fruits and vegetables,” Morgan said. “I’m glad to see the market here and be a part of the community. I’m sure this location is going to bring a lot of new visitors to the market.”
