Farmer’s Market reconsiders move, says it will stay in Cooper-Young
The Cooper-Young Community Farmer’s Market, part of the neighborhood since 2010, said it’s staying in Cooper-Young.
The organization made the announcement in January that it was considering moving from the parking lot of First Congo Church to Overton Square, but the organization said Jan. 30 that it had reconsidered.
The Cooper-Young Farmer’s Market began hosting vendors selling produce, meats, eggs, breads, crafts and more in the parking lot of First Congo church in 2010. It is open each Saturday, year-round.
“The CYCFM was considering a move to Overton Square but with much deliberation with vendors, First Congregational Church and community members the market feels staying in Cooper-Young and recommitting to the neighborhood is the best thing for the market,” the group said in a news release.
The Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market says it will host a “Kick-Off Day” on April 5 to start spring with new energy and recommitment to the neighborhood.
