Fish market in Fulton County, Georgia, closes for the season
FALL FARMERS, Ga.
(AP) A fish market in a northern Georgia county that has been open since March has closed for the year because of the effects of Superstorm Sandy, officials said Friday.
Fulton County Commissioner Bill Siegel says it’s been closed since March.
The Fulton County Fish Market was located on the corner of Fulton Street and North Avenue, on a street named for the late Fulton County Commissioner Benjamin Franklin.
Siegel says the Fish Market is open as usual and he hopes the market will reopen.
He says it’ll be open again as soon as the winds recede.
Fifty-six people were killed in Sandy-related storms, most in the South.
The deaths have been blamed on storm surges, flooding and lack of fuel, according to the Georgia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The market closed on March 1.
