Many of you know that the current site of Western Wake Farmers’ Market, Carpenter Village on Morrisville-Carpenter Road, will one day be developed (WE ARE NOT IMMINENTLY THREATENED!). Two years ago we proactively began a search for a “Forever Home”. We’ve vetted a number of potential sites in those two years, and in September we started discussions in earnest to relocate market to a permanent site in Morrisville.
Next week the Morrisville Town Council will consider an important step in the process of creating the ultimate, awesome site we all imagine. They will decide whether or not to permit staff to apply for a grant from the Rex Foundation. The grant is multi-faceted, but a key element of the plan is to relocate the WWFM tent market as a first step in the process of getting to the permanent structure. At the end of the day, if awarded, receiving the grant represents a commitment. A commitment to start down the path toward building the vision.
The WWFM board thinks that a permanent farmers market structure in Morrisville is a benefit for all of the current customers of the market, and for the Town of Morrisville. If you are a Morrisville resident and agree that a permanent farmers’ market site and structure is a good investment for the Town to make, we would appreciate you letting the Council know that you support that investment.
You can reach the entire Council with one email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We appreciate you taking the time to express your support. It’s important that you do so before the next council meeting on Tuesday, April 8th.
