Yesterday I made the suggestion on the Dennis Economic Developmnt Blog that we consider closing a portion of Hall Street one afternoon a week to host a Farmers Market. For those of you unfamiliar with the issue, the Dennisport Revitalization Committee and the Dennisport Business Association have been trying to bring a Farmers Market to the village. Ideas ranging from Mike Stacey Park to the Catholic Church Parking Lot Have been considered. However, each has its drawbacks. Mike Stacey Park has generally been a favored location. However, the grassy areas of the park become inaccessible to children looking to play during those hours of operation.
Locating a Farmers Market on Hall Street itself would alleviate this issue. It could also be tied in to other park activities, drawing many new visitors to the Village.
What do you think?
