Cooper-Young Farmers Market Considers Overton Square Move



The Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market is considering a move to Overton Square.


Market leaders entered a Facebook contest in late 2013 for free marketing services by local firm Obsidian Public Relations. The main reason the market needed the services, according to contest posts, was to help it begin the move from the parking lot of First Congregational Church Memphis to bustling Overton Square.

But the move is not happening “as of today,” said Lauren Boyer, a member of the market’s board of directors.

“We are considering a potential move but have not decided or made any formal agreements with Loeb Properties,” Boyer said.

The market did not win Obsidian’s PR 180° Project contest for PR services.

The Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market was founded in 2009. The market is now a year-round market and is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday at the corner of Walker and Cooper.
