Local Durham Economy

So if you read this post, you know that we've gotten a little static from the Farmer's Market/Durham Central Park. We followed up this past week with a request to the market manager to temporarily share a vendor spot in the Market with a vendor we know that does not operate during the Winter. We were curtly denied.

One of the vendors mentioned possibly starting our own Farmer's Market as there are several other farmers/vendors who would otherwise like to join the Market this year. I was thinking of that empty lot next to Motorco in Downtown. What do you guys think of that idea? Are there enough market-goers to sustain two markets? Would creating a competitive market for farmer's market goods result in better quality, or just lower sales receipts for all vendors (due to the market dilution)?
