— The State Farmers Market Restaurant will be closed for repairs from Jan. 11 until March 7.

Closing is the best way to handle repairs planned for the kitchen, HVAC and floor of the building, which opened in 1991, said Kent Yelverton, director of property and construction for the N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. The department leases the space to the restaurant.

“We are committed to meeting the March 7 reopening date so that the project’s impact on the restaurant’s employees and customers is as small as possible,” Yelverton said.

When the restaurant reopens, customers will have the additional options of patio seating and dinner service on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
