A farmers' market for Druid Hill Park?
They're thinking about it.
Posted on Facebook:
The Department of Recreation and Parks and the Friends of Druid Hill Park have been researching the idea of creating a new Farmer’s Market in Druid Hill Park near the Conservatory. We would like to invite persons interested in actively participating in the creation and implementation of this new market to our first working group meeting on Tuesday, March 29, 5:30 pm, at the Rawlings Conservatory in Druid Hill Park.
Please forward this invitation along to anyone you believe may be interested in working toward the Druid Hill Farmer’s Market becoming a reality. Our goal for this meeting is to determine the “ideal” market type for Druid Hill Park, and the specific steps we need to take to organize the market structure, including the subsequent working group meeting schedule.
Light refreshments will be served, so please RSVP your attendance to my office phone, 410-396-7012 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I spoke with Fran Spero over at the parks department, who told me that tonight's meeting is for people who are willing to work to make this thing happen.NIMBYS, cranks and other assorted obstructionists are not explicitly not invited to attend, but the meeting really is intended for people who are in favor of having a farmers market in Druid Hill Park and want to help make it a reality.
