Mississippi Marketplace is getting ready to open.Â We just passed the final City inspection and will get power on Tuesday September 8th.Â The vacant lot has been Â graded, graveled and coated with pervious (as in percolate) asphalt for the most environmentally- friendly and storm water safe location possible for food and vendor carts. Check out the before, during and after photos in our photo album on the right hand side of the web site. We Â landscaped with native plants like Oregon Grape, Colrado Blue Spruce andÂ many interesting cultivars of Japanese Maples.Â Prost! is continuing to build out the interior of the renovated church building and will be opening in Fall. Â We are still accepting applications for artisan/vendor booths (8 x8 foot size and 10 x 10 foot size) â€“ go to applications on this web site.Â See you soon and all the best!
