At tonight’s meeting, community board 8 voted to approve an application to extend the St. Stephen’s Green market for a full 52-week schedule.  This is an impressive reversal from last week’s meeting when the street fairs subcommittee voted 7-2 to recommend a June to December schedule only.  Statements of support for council members Jessica Lappin and Dan Garodnick along with sentiments expressed by several community members helped to sway the board.  The final vote was 36 for, 5 against and 3 abstain.

The market is open on Saturdays from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM on the south side of 82nd St. between 1st and York.
