Securing Permanent Sites

Client: Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance

Managed the alliance’s efforts to secure permanent locations for farmers’ markets in three neighborhoods: University District, Capitol Hill-Broadway, and Columbia City. Identified sites; contacted and held discussions with property owners; developed letters of intent; secured the necessary public agency approvals; and conducted a financial analysis of the markets’ operating budget structure. (2008 – 2011)

Results: Columbia City Farmer’s Market relocated within the Edmunds St. right-of-way, increasing its visibility and sales. The Capitol Hill Farmer’s Market relocated at the Link light rail station through an agreement with Sound Transit.
