The Kingfield Neighborhood Association’s Farmers’ Market, set to start June 12, will have a new home after all. It won’t be the new 39th & Nicollet Mulroy’s Body Shop, 39th & Nicollet, as previously planned; instead, it will be at Mulroy’s old site at 4325 Nicollet Ave.
The parking-lot market had been on Time-Warner property on the 4200 block of Nicollet. However, the market’s popularity required a move.
Mulroy’s owner Pat Mulroy was eager to host the event, but the city wouldn’t allow the market at his new locale because it carries a residential zoning – which prohibits farmer’s markets. Senior City Planner Beth Elliot said the market can go into old Mulroy’s site, because it’s zoned for commercial use, which allows for the market.
The site is now home to Frame-Ups and Young’s Flowers.
The market is open every Sunday until October. For more information, visit www.kingfield.org.
