Cooper-Young Farmers Market To Stay in Cooper-Young



The Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market will stay in its namesake Midtown neighborhood.

Market leaders considered moving the market to Overton Square late last year but have decided to remain in the parking lot of First Congregational Church on Cooper.

The decision comes after "deliberation with vendors, First Congregational Church and community members," according to the market's Facebook page. Also, "recommitting to the neighborhood is the best thing for the market."

The market will host a "Kick-Off Day" on Saturday, April 5 "to start spring with new energy and recommitment to the neighborhood."

The market is open year round on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is located at 1000 S. Cooper.
