Sarkozy’s Bakery has been providing fresh baked goods to the Kalamazoo community since 1978. In hopes of preserving the strong business she made, a succession plan was set in place for the first time in 44 years.
When you turn onto Bank Street from Crosstown and pull up to the site of the Farmers Market, it's a bit stunning. It's never really been much more than the building housing the bathrooms and a row of shelters for the farmers, but hearing news that the plan is for the Farmers Market to reopen in early May, you look and think, how are they going to pull this off in about five or six weeks.
The Kalamazoo Farmers Market, which is already temporarily relocated to Mayor's Riverfront Park, is again shaking things up a little and trying something different. It's the nighttime Farmers Market, Thursday evening, July 22nd, beginning at 5pm and going until 10pm. Now we can debate just how night time it is, as we still have plenty of daylight past 9pm, but for people who can't do daytimes hours, due to work, or simply have too much going on on Saturdays with kids' sports, this might be a nice alternative.
