Scott and Robin Rogers, the owners of the seasonal hot dog stand Dog-A-Foot in downtown Port Townsend, are the new owners of the 122-year-old market.
“Dogs-A-Foot is seasonal, so we were looking for something extra,” Scott Rogers said.
Scott said he wasn’t excited about the prospect of owning a market but that his wife convinced him to check it out.
“After meeting some of the people who work here and getting an idea of what this place means to the uptown community and the community in general, the decision was kind of made,” he said.
The Rogerses have lived in Port Townsend for roughly six years and moved from Bainbridge Island, where Robin lived for over 10 years, Scott for about six.
