In its third week, the Wednesday Midday Market in Williams Park in St. Petersburg drew about 1,000 patrons and has been a consistent draw since opening Feb. 7. Wednesday is the last day of the four-week market trial period, and organizers plan to meet soon to decide whether to extend the run. Manager David Cellon says he has been pleased with the results so far. The Downtown Partnership, a business alliance, is one of the sponsors. President Don Shea says organizers are developing a plan to extend the market into March. "We don't quite know," Shea said Friday. "We hope so, but we don't have funding in place yet, and we hope to soon." This Wednesday, the food-and-music minifestival will run as usual, 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Music will be supplied by Providence, two women who play "a folksy kind of rock," Cellon said.
