Huntington’s Wild Ramp Market–Work Day #1

June 2, 2012

A group of people in the city of Huntington have been working hard all winter to open a year-round indoor local farm market asap. The market space is located in Heritage Station, Huntington’s first railroad station. The area has been renovated into shops with many having local work on display.

A space was found for the market and on June 2, with a plan to follow, the work commenced!

About 15 people showed up to contribute energy and elbow grease this afternoon.

After marking which walls would remain and which would need to be removed, trimwork and doors were removed for cleaning and re-installation or donation to the Habitat for Humanity Reuse Store.

Ceiling panels were removed to be pressure washed and then freshly painted. Ductwork was cleaned.

The sign was set up on the front window with the help of a Level App on an I-phone. Then the artist got to work,  with some assistance.

Finally, the part everyone enjoys, some walls came down.

And it was agreed, it was all good!

      I think we had a good number of people for this large scale work…..enough so no one got too tired and enough space to move safely. As we get into painting and then construction of shelves and displays it will good for a few more people….especially the consumers who will reap huge benefits……to come and give a couple of hours of work. The more people who help build this market, the more the community will make its investment into supporting it and it will grow!
