The Farmer's Market in Wichita Falls could be getting some upgrades.

Friday the 4B board will have a public hearing discussing allotting money towards farmer's market improvements.

The project would include enclosing the roof to help with bad weather during events and will angle the roof so that their rain water system is enhanced.

Organizers say their goal is to make the Farmer's market usable year round and say changes made now will help expand its uses later on.

" The way the posts are set we can put garage doors on their so these doors can be raised and lowered according to the weather and according to what's going on," says Cynthia Laney, Executive Director of Downtown Proud. 

The project will also include adding even more led lights to the market.

The total for all the improvements is estimated to cost around 130 thousand dollars.
