Open Air Market

Two Maryville women have an idea of what to do with the downtown lot left vacant by an apartment fire.

Misty Meyer and Bev Henry are proposing an open air community market. They asked for the city council's support at this week's meeting. They want to open the event to food and craft vendors to set up and sell their wares every Saturday, with the money to reserve vendor spaces going toward advertising of the event. Special spring and autumn festivals are also being planned to bring in out-of-town artisans. Henry says it would be a win for mom-and-pop sellers as well as Maryville's downtown district.

Pending city approval, Maryville's open air community market could start next April and run through October.
