The seeds of change

110113Shrewsbury – The town of Shrewsbury may soon join the list of local communities that have farmers” markets, thanks to a change in the town's zoning bylaws.

After the seeing the success of the markets in neighboring Grafton and Westborough, many residents and local businesses had approached officials about setting one up in Shrewsbury. That first necessitated a change in the town's bylaws, which was approved at the Oct. 21 Special Town Meeting.

Both indoor and outdoor markets may now be held in residential, industrial and office-research districts with a special permit from the Planning Board.
