Urbana’s Market at the Square opens this Saturday, May 7. Market Director Lisa Bralts visited the studio to discuss the upcoming market season. Our conversation touched on a wide range of subjects:
- Changes to this year’s market, including the decision to ban all pets
- The huge growth of Urbana’s market and how it compares to other markets in Illinois and around the country
- Why the community feels such ownership over the market and how Lisa balances the community’s needs with the needs of the farmers and government regulations
- The advantages of buying food from local farmers
