Thursday was opening day for a new indoor market in Redmond. The owner of "Redmond's Bazaar" Jerry Parks says in this tough economy some small business owners have had to come up with creative solutions to save money and make money.  "We have so many talented people here in Central Oregon; the problem is getting their products to market because of the exorbitant cost of getting stand alone storefronts. You have all the rent space and tax and license and it just goes on and on. And its' just prohibitive for a small person to feed their family business, or make something and get it out there."   This new indoor market comes on the heals of the closure of 2 similar markets in Bend. Parks says zoning won't be a problem for Redmond’s Bazaar; the year around market is located in an 11,000 square foot building on Highway 97 in south Redmond, Thursday thru Sunday.
