A Lehighton businessman is hoping to organize a weekly farmers' market next to one of Lehighton's busiest thoroughfares.
Frank Potoczak, owner of the Castle Grill Restaurant, said last night he would like to have the exchange along Lehigh Drive, which is off Route 209 (Sgt. Stanley Hoffman Boulevard).
He presented the proposal to Lehighton Borough Council. Several members of the council praised the concept, but no formal action on the request was taken.
Potoczak said he would like to get the event started possibly on Saturdays as soon as possible.
