UPDATE: Move for a public market downtown taking shape

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2012 at 7:38 PM

In next week's Indy, we'll have an update for you on the proposed Downtown Public Market (a tentative name, as none has been finalized yet).

And on that same day our paper hits racks (hence this early heads-up), you'll have a chance to hear directly from one of the project's key organizers, Mike Callicrate from Ranch Foods Direct.

Callicrate will be the guest speaker at the Better Energy and Environment Roundtable (BEER) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Sonterra Grill.

The event is organized by SunShare, and the first 25 folks to arrive will be treated to a free beer.

——- ORIGINAL POST, THURSDAY, NOV. 15, 5:05 P.M. ——-

Back in June, we told you here about a proposal for a downtown public market in the spirit of Seattle's Pike Place Market.

Work on that project remains underway, and those interested in supporting the effort — be it by providing comment or attending brainstorming sessions — can now connect with the organizing parties on the Colorado Springs Public Market website.

Take a stroll through it to see such renderings as these:
