The board of the Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market recently voted to extend its season and will now remain open year-round.

Debbi La Rue, market manager, says that the move is in keeping with the market's goal of providing the area with fresh produce.

In addition, the Tsunami Winter Market, led by Van Cheeseman of Flora Farms, will return to the Tsunami parking lot.

Cheeseman is planning a customer appreciation cookout on November 5th, and the market will begin the following Saturday.

Both La Rue and Cheeseman say that the two markets bracketing Cooper-Young's restaurants reinforce that neighborhood as a food district.
