Work on a farmer's market for the downtown could begin within a week, according to Arnold Croken. He's the general manager of the Summerside Regional Development Corporation (SRDC).

"We're negotiating a lease (arrangement). We're trying to make it as reasonable as possible," said Croken of the Dominion Square building, where the farmer's market would take roost.

Businesswoman Lynn Nicholson, owner of Crockett's Quality Jewellers, says farmers's markets bring something special to downtowns, drawing strangers, neighbours and friends together.

"I'm hoping it's going to come back to the downtown. I think it would be a great draw."

Farmers markets also serve another important need - providing food for those who have special dietary requirements, such as Nicholson, who is on a gluten-free diet. Producers can individually tailor their products to those with special diets, she said.

Nicholson went on to say farmers markets are a good fit for communities who wish "to go green" since many producers will raise crops using environmentally healthy and sustainable methods. Organizers are hoping to have the market in place by June, so all the details have to be nailed down as soon as possible, and that includes a design concept.

The SRDC's board of directors meets today, "but I don't see that as an obstacle," Croken said. The farmer's market would be based in Dominion Square's basement. Research throughout North America shows farmers markets are very good at drawing new visitors to the downtown and boosting revenues, said Croken. "There's been substantial growth in farmers' markets," he said.
