Ypsilanti Citizen: Growing Hope seeking a new home for Ypsilanti Downtown Farmers' Market
Growing Hope is looking for a new home for Ypsilanti's Downtown Farmers' Market, according to the Ypsilanti Citizen.
The market, which is organized by the non-profit group Growing Hope, has been held in the parking lot of the Key Bank at Michigan Avenue and Adams Street since its first season in 2006. But increased activity at the bank has Growing Hope executive director Amanda Edmonds worried that there will soon be no space for the market.
Edmonds has been in discussions with the Ypsilanti City Council to determine a new location for the market, which has seen steady increases in traffic each year, according to the Ypsilanti Citizen. Two options are currently being discussed: closing Ferris Street between Hamilton and Adams; or using the Post Office parking lot at Adams and Ferris Street.
The Ypsilanti Downtown Farmers' Market operates every Tuesday from 2 to 6 p.m., beginning May 5. Growing Hope will have a kick-off event on April 20 at the Senior Center on Congress Street.
