Stay Tuned for a Possible Location Change or not
I want to hands down let all of the world and mostly South Park know just how much I really like the folks at Napoli’s Pizzeria (and the coffee shop). They are community minded, good folks.
There were concerns brought up about safety and street closures, businesses being blocked or not accessed by the market’s location this year and some of the products conflicting. But with that Napoli’s said we could talk about using their parking lot. And can you believe this, they are going to allow us to use it for free to make sure our market gets to be open this coming Saturday. We’ll pitch in some some electricity, restroom facility use etc. But this is amazing. Here is a business feeling the effects of a bridge closure and a depressed economy and yet they are stepping up to come up with workable solutions that allow the folks with small market vendor booths have a chance to try and make their small businesses hopefully stand a chance.
So now we wait to find out what the Mayor says about the street closure and the location. Apparently he has the final say. In the meantime, I am applauding Napoli’s for being such a great neighbor.
So one way or the other the market will happen at the corner of 14th and Cloverdale…we are just not exactly sure yet as to where.
In the meantime, please frequent South Park businesses whenever you can afford to. We are all in this together. The bridge closure is affecting all of us. Let’s pull together and help one another.
And we hope to see you at the Market this Saturday as well.
