Midtown Farmers' Market?
A local businessman is working on starting a farmers' market, possibly in Overton Park. I love the downtown one, but Midtown could badly use one within walking distance. (It took me 12 minutes to drive from my corner of Midtown near the park down to the south edge of downtown this morning). Also, a market on a different day would be great -- if I'm out of town for the weekend, I miss out for the week, unless I want to drive even further out to the botanic gardens. Madison, WI has a market every day in a different neighborhood, making locally grown food easy for everyone to get and profitable for the farmers. With Millington and Collierville working on getting their own markets, Midtown is overdue.
