All Vendors to Receive Refunds Following Closure of Milton Public Market
It has been just over two months since the Milton Public Market suddenly closed.
The market was founded by Philip Suos, the founder of two other widely popular Milton events - the Holiday Street Market, and The Mac and Cheese Festival. And was located at the Milton Fairgrounds and was going to be open every Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 6 p.m.
The market kicked off on May 25, and was going to be open until Sept. 15, 2019.
However, back in June it was announced that the market would be closing.
At the time of the announcement, no official reason for the closure had been provided. However, Suos has since revealed that he was hospitalized.
"I am proud to have tried to start something in Milton," Suos said. "It just didn't work out for a number of reasons but one of the main and foremost reasons was my health. I need to always focus on that first."
As a result of being hospitalized, Suos was not able to communicate which left some vendors wondering when they would receive their refunds.
Suos said that he has contacted all of the vendors, and has assured that they will be getting their refunds within the next couple of weeks.
