Busy Times in Old North -Celebrating Asphalt, Quality of Life, Streetballers, and the North City Farmers’ Market

This past week was so full of meetings and events that there wasn’t much time left for blog updates.  The following photos present just a few images of the activities of this action-packed week:

Further evidence that the Crown Square redevelopment is nearing its completion: the first layer of asphalt has been poured on the 2600 block of N. 14th Street was cause for great celebration.

More details about the film - and an opportunity to support independent film-making and the local film industry by purchasing a copy of the DVD - can be found on the Streetballers website

Thanks also to Cinema St. Louis (especially Cliff Froehlich, Chris Clark, and Brian Spath) and the Kresge Foundation for making this partnership possible.  The next film in our gallery will be the documentary, The Pruitt-Igoe Myth, scheduled for Friday, June 25.

Preparations for the opening of the 4th Season of the North City Farmers’ Market

Earlier today volunteers fanned out to go door-to-door throughout the neighborhood to deliver door-hangers about the North City Farmers’ Market and the Eat.Right.Now! parade.  The market opens next Saturday (June 5) at 9 a.m. and will run until 1 p.m. (only on opening day) and will return every Saturday from 9-noon through October 16.  The parade will start at Blair and Salisbury in Hyde Park and will take a route that goes through the St. Louis Place neighborhood on the way to the North City Farmers’ Market at St. Louis Avenue & N. 14th.  The market will be in operation during the parade, so if you can’t join the parade, you can go straight to the market.

Visit the new and improved website for the North City Farmers’ Market to keep up with all of the news and developments with the 4th season of the market.
