The move of the Hamilton Farmers' Market for renovations has been pushed back until April.
The market was supposed to be closed for about five days this month as vendors moved to another spot in Jackson Square.
But the new plans have the market moving after the traditionally busy Easter season. The market is now slated to be closed for several days starting Sunday April 12.
Vendors will be able to reopen on Thursday, April 23, in the market's new Jackson Square location, near Dollarama.
The renovations, which also affect the Central Library, are expected to be completed by Fall 2010.
The city is currently reviewing bids for the project and is expected to award the renovation in the next few weeks.
Library services will still be available during the renovation but the first floor will be closed.
Road work along York Boulevard, from Bay to James streets will be done in tandem with the renovation project.
