Market Canopy Going Up This Fall
No farmer's market today in La Crosse's Cameron park. The season's over for the market. But construction may begin there soon for the remainder of the canopy to cover vendors. Market supporters had done fundraising for a permanent canopy at the park and then got a big boost from La Crosse native Paul Hanifl, allowing for about half of the canopy to get built. An additional fifty thousand dollar check recently from Hanifl as well as 52 thousand dollars from the city will allow the second half to get built. La Crosse parks director Steve Carlyon says the canopy should go up this fall and be ready for the start of the market next spring.
