Palmetto May Be Getting A Farmer's Market

Industry Observer with No longer practicing real estate as of 2008.

Good news for residents in the area since the one that was held in Bradenton on Main Street was closed last year because the local businesses said they didn't have the money to keep it going any longer.

2 local residents, Mitchell Armstrong and Kelvin Lindbloom say they want to try and make a go of Farmers Market in Palmetto along the Manatee River, near the pier at the foot the Green Bridge.

Palmetto leaders are likely to approve plans for the market in early February.

The plans were presented this week to city officials. Palmetto Mayor Larry Bustle called the proposal "a good thing for the city" because it could boost downtown business while keeping Palmetto's folksy feel.

Armstrong and Lindbloom will be selling plants they grow as well as inviting other vendors to sell fruits and vegetables.
