A victory for vegetables

Posted By on Sat, Jun 26, 2010 at 10:17 AM

Remember the news I'd passed along about city code enforcement officers shutting down a small farmers market at Pulaski Academy?

You can fight city hall. This note went out Friday to interested parties from assistant city manager Bryan Day.

Good afternoon —

City staff has met and talked about the local market being held at Pulaski Academy . We are very much in support of local farmers and want to find a way to increase access to home grown produce throughout the community. In light of our discussions, we have decided to allow the market to continue operating at Pulaski Academy on an interim basis. We must all sit down in the future and develop a long-term strategy for providing locations and procedures for local farmers. Please let me know who would like to be a part of that discussion.

If you have questions, please feel free to call me.

Bryan
