Kuna Farmers Market goes before City Council tonight

Reminder that the Kuna Farmers Market goes before the Kuna City Council tonight. If you support the market and want to see it move to the city park, you best show up at tonight's meeting.
Market organizers are seeking to move from the current location in the Sandstone Plaza parking lot to the Col. Bernard Fisher Veterans Memorial City Park.
Organizers hope to move to the concrete pad that fronts Main Street and serves as a basketball court. The move is intended to increase the market’s visibility and to provide more shade for market shoppers. It’s also intended to capitalize on the synergy of families using the city park on Saturday mornings.
The market wrapped up its sixth season in Kuna last year. It runs generally from May through September from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday mornings. Cheryl McCord and Bill Clark are the volunteer organizers and managers of the market. The market features local farms, such as Cabalo’s and Vogel Farms, as well as local nursery Rustic Gardens, and several other small-acreage farms in and around Kuna.
