The market in Columbia has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past
few years. They are trying to negotiate with the city to make their rental
site a permanent site. They also would like to put up a building and a
little further down the road to put in a community/incubator kitchen and
perhaps a local foods restaurant while the market is open. The facility
could also be used as a community center as well.
Essentially, we are looking for other communities who have undergone similar
transitions from temporary location to permanent location, from outdoors to
a building with both indoor and outdoor stalls, to envisioning kitchen,
restaurant, community center down the road.
Any contacts/networking would be greatly appreciated.
