A Farmer’s Market for Church Street?

Cole Mondor, owner and pharmacist at Mint Health + Drugs mentioned to me that he would like to see and help support a farmer’s market at the intersection of 106A Avenue and Church Street every Sunday throughout the summer.

I think this is an exciting idea to examine and would appreciate input from community members. We are encouraging a walkable Church Street, and think this would enhance reasons to walk down the street. A Sunday stroll after church to get an ice cream soda at Mint’s Soda Bar and picking up fresh food and home made crafts seems like an idyllic way to spend a warm afternoon.

What do you think? There is not much traffic on Church Street on a Sunday, and the parking is easier without the business parking that fills up the street on business days.

Do you have any ideas about organizing a market? I know it has been done before through Revitalization, and I will be meeting with Jane Molstad before this paper is printed. Let me know what you think, please!

Leave a message at the newspaper office phone – (780) 425-3475 – or email us at friendsofchurchstreet@gmail.com.

Colleen is the President of the Friends of Church Street Society.
