The ground has been broken and construction is underway for the new Native Farmers Market Pavilion
The pavilion, which received a grant for $200,000 from the USDA, will be located on the northeast corner of Broadway and Leaton roads in Mt. Pleasant. When finished, the pavilion will be 40-by-50-feet and will include a sidewalk and a parking lot.
The goal of the Native Farmers Market Pavilion is to provide a location where fresh season and locally grown produce is available to the community. Vendors do not have to be Native in order to sell produce, but they do in order to sell Native art.
