The Bend Farmers Market has a new look and a new place: it’s in a parking lot instead of a lawn. The market moved Wednesday from Drake Park to the Mirror Pond Parking lot. “This was the best business decision the best for the community and the best for accessibility to make that work.” Chuck Arnold is on the Farmers Market Board and says disability advocates told the City the Drake Park site was too tough to navigate. People in wheelchairs and powered scooters said they had trouble going to the market because of the soft grass and slopes of the terrain. Arnold says overall the move went pretty smooth: “Change is always a challenge for some people at first, some people were having a hard time finding the stalls they were used to finding at a certain location; but overall people want the quality food the community connection. People want to have the Downtown Farmers Market thrive.” During the off-season, the Market Board and the City will decide if it should stay there or move to another permanent location. Note: The Downtown Bend Farmers Market runs every Wednesday through October 12.
