UPDATE: After it was evacuated Wednesday, the Freight House Farmers’ Market will continue with “business as usual,” according to a post on its Facebook page.
“Out of an overabundance of caution and concern for our customers and vendors, our indoor unit was evacuated (Wednesday evening) for inspection of an exterior wall,” the post said. “After inspection (Wednesday evening, we were given the go-ahead to carry on business as usual moving forward.”
EARLIER: The City of Davenport has evacuated the Freight House Farmers Market due to an outside wall leaning. A structural engineer is currently on site, evaluating the building. Currently the city has no idea when vendors may be allowed back into the building or if they will be able to conduct business outside the market. More information should be available tomorrow.
The Quad City Cruisers are in the parking lot and Front Street Taproom is still open, but the market is closed, according to a post on their Facebook page.
