Possible New Farmer's Market at Glen Alla Park

A new farmer's market may soon be coming to the neighborhood.

The Del Rey Neighborhood Council's Planning and Land Use Committee passed a resolution to recommend a weekly farmer's market at Glen Alla Park.

"Glen Alla Park, since they put in the playground, has been a great treasure for Del Rey really," said Eric DeSobe, president of the Del Rey Neighborhood Council.

DeSobe said there is plenty of foot traffic in the area to support it, and the idea has already received positive feedback from local residents through the Del Rey Neighborhood Council's Facebook page.

"There's really a lot of excitement around a farmer's market," he said. "I think the community is definitely excited about it."

If the Del Rey Neighborhood Council officially votes in favor of the farmer's market at its next meeting June 14, the market could open by mid-July, DeSobe said. The committee proposes the farmer's market be held from 2-7 p.m. on Fridays.
