Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen unanimously agree to move the 2013 Farmers' Market to the grass field to the east of Town Hall in front of the old fire station from the market's location on Old Causeway Drive. 

Traffic congestion and pedestrian safety was the main concern of the board and the Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee. Another concern was that the Old Causeway Drive location would not allow the market to add any more vendors.

The board also voted to approve the market to bring in craft vendors to the market. The craft vendors would not account for more than 20 percent of the market's vendors.
