The Kalamazoo Farmers Market is looking to make some big changes which they hope will get approved by the city next month as requested by The Parks & Recreation Department. On Tuesday, March 2 at 5:30 p.m., they're encouraging the public to comment on the project they have in mind at the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board meeting, where they seek approval for a Trust Fund Development and Recreation Passport, which will allow them to add a fruit and vegetable-themed playground and replace the current restroom building.

The city made the announcement on their Facebook, saying: "The playground will provide a space for children to play while parents do their shopping and will be accessible to youth in the Edison neighborhood year round. The new restroom building will double the current restroom capacity, provide a larger office, and increase storage by more than 50%."

The meeting is going to be streamed live on the City’s Facebook and YouTube channels, and community members that are interested in offering their comments about the project can call (269) 226-6573 starting at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2.

The Framers Market 2020 Season has officially ended as of December, but as of now the projected opening of the 2021 season looks to be May 1st, although nothing officially has been announced. Although the featured picture may not actually be the selected playground, here is an idea of what they may be going for with the new playground.
