Return of vendors to Washington waterfront one step closer

 The return of vendors to the Washington waterfront is one step closer after a more than 10 year absence.

Earlier this week, the town council voted to allow vendors to sell goods once again, but still had some details to work out.
Folks with the harbor district say this will only enhance what the waterfront already offers people.

“These vendors will accommodate those type of people who don’t really want to go into any of the restaurants downtown, but just want to hang out on the waterfront,” explained Beth Byrd, Washington Harbor District Alliance.

The discussion to bring back vendors started a few months ago when a Greenville-based ice cream business made the request.
Vendors will have to pay a rental fee to sell along the waterfront.
Byrd hopes details will be finalized during the June council meeting.
