I am reminded of a wonderful quote that I came across recently: "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." — Martin Luther King, Jr.
As I see it, we are about half way up the staircase of this project.
Due to the normal routine of schedules, which includes various folks' summer vacations, we have to put off the open air market for a few weeks yet.
We've been approved for 16 outdoor spaces. With the closing on the property, we are looking to have the first outdoor market in early August. Understandably this is the end of the growing season, and many vendors are already committed elsewhere. However, this will give us some time get some of our other "ducks in a row."
Just like "slow food", these things take time. Stay tuned for updates!
