West Broadway Farmers Market Study

The West Broadway Business and Area Coalition (WBC) works to change the economic conditions of North Minneapolis by engaging in activities designed to transform West Broadway into a place where neighborhood residents have access to goods and services and amenities to meet their social and entertainment needs. WBC planned to start an outdoor urban market in the summer of 2011 and needed research assistance in site selection, successful business models and available funding sources. The new market will provide economic development opportunities for local farmers and entrepreneurs and provide improved access to fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy food options. Alicia Uzarek, an Urban and Regional Planning graduate student at the Humphrey School, researched potential sites, business models and potential vendors for the market. The results are being used to identify funding opportunities and inform how to create the market.
