Conservation district turning eyesore into farmers market

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – As a part of a years-long effort to revitalize a 50-acre quarry, the Spokane Conservation District plans to turn an old Scale House – where trucks would measure out how much asphalt they were putting on their trucks – into a hub for local agriculture.

“This will be a place that people will come to because there’s something going on here that they want to be involved in,” Conservation District Director Vicki Carter said.
