Roosevelt Island Farmers Market Returning To Motorgate Plaza Under Helix Starting November 24 For Winter - Will Return To Good Shepherd Plaza In Spring

The Roosevelt Island Farmers Market made a very successful move to Good Shepherd Plaza last Spring.

But, be advised that the Roosevelt Island Farmers Market is moving temporarily back to it's former location under the Motorgate Plaza Helix for the cold winter months starting Saturday November 24.

and will return to the Good Shepherd Plaza March 9.

According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC)
The weekly Roosevelt Island Farmer’s Market, administered by the Parent Teacher Association of PS/IS 217, is going back home this winter.

The Saturday market - which offers fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, meats, baked goods and other specialty products - is moving back to its former location under the Helix road ramp from its current location at Good Shepherd Plaza beginning November 24 through Saturday March 9, 2019.

The enclosed space under the Helix can be heated and is expected to keep both vendors and customers comfortable while selling and buying goods.
Not sure what RIOC means by administered by the PTA. My understanding is that the PTA does not do anything for the Market other than collect fees from vendors.
