A Permanent Farmers’ Market Might Be Coming To Austin

leave a comment »

 The city’s collective dream of no longer being forced to live in a constant state of frustration with the downtown Whole Foods parking lot might come true. The Economic Growth and Redevelopment Services Office is sussing out what it would take (and how much it would cost) for Austin to have a farmers’ market that operates seven days a week

The idea was first proposed by Texas Perspectives, a economic analysis and consulting firm. Austin city reps traveled to Portland and Seattle to study how their full time farmer’s markets operate. And while plans of what Austin’s own market may or may not look like are still in the very early stages, city rep Margaret Shaw did confirm to KUT that the city does posses the necessary infrastructure to support one.
