|Mound Farmers Market. A great event, and a great place.|
How many of us actually go visit a business along Commerce while going to Dog Days Westonka, or getting some vegetables from the Farmers Market?
|Who goes to Commerce Boulevard on Saturday morning?|
Instead of placing all those Farmer Market vendors in a parking lot behind the bank, or having all the activities like Spirit of the Lakes by the Andrew Sisters Trail and public docks, they should be lined up in the street on Commerce. Let the vendors, and small businesses, and those customers have some interaction with the Commerce Blvd businesses. You increase the opportunities for personal and business connections.
|Imagine these kids playing in the Street, on Commerce!|
This is an easy and cheap idea that could give those businesses we all drive by on Commerce, a chance to prosper, if only for a Saturday morning.
Let's work for opportunities like this to make Mound a place to drive to, not drive through.
