The Big Idea

We're transforming a downtown parking lot into a community hub,

a place to connect with local food, farmers, and each other,

bringing Raleigh's diverse neighbors and communities together.

The Space

WHAT IF ... WE COULD WALK or BIKE TO A WEEKEND FARMERS MARKET DOWNTOWN (again)?

Wouldn’t it be great to walk to a Farmers Market downtown on the weekend?  To shop outside for fresh local vegetables, grab a cup of coffee, breakfast perhaps, hang out and meet your neighbors?  We can! There is  a place of opportunity, a “missing tooth” between downtown and nearby walkable neighborhoods: the Person Street parking lot across from the Governor’s Mansion.  Open to the public on weekends, this lot is  rarely  used.  These state-owned lots serve government workers only during the week. … but we live here all the time.
