Farmers Market Anyone?

I read about a month or so ago that Smyrna is working to get a Farmer's Market. I'd like to see one in LaVergne, too! I know there are several homeowners near me who put up signs during the summer offering to sell veggies and I think one actually goes somewhere once a week to sell. Another home owner usually puts up a "Free!" sign on a table when they have an overabundance.

The PERFECT spot would've been where the old Clayton Mobile Home sales center used to be, but of course that's all blocked up with big barriers now to keep the semis from parking there. It could be placed in that little park next to the creek which I think is owned by the neighborhood association (maybe they'd allow it if enough paperwork and legal docs were signed). Heck, it could even be in the parking lot of the Civic Auditorium.

In addition, you could pick just one or two days to have it open like the place I used to live and maybe only in the summer. The city could sell inexpensive permits to operate, maybe $100 for a month or $30 for one week for the local folks who are unable to do it every single week. Products could range from home grown stuff to flowers or herbs.

I think it would be a wonderful success and could really help build community.
