There’s a big push to make this coming Easter Festival at the Broadway Market the best in recent years. In order to pull that off, the market is looking for an influx of vendors to add diversity and density to the historic establishment. We all have different reasons to stop by the market during the spring shopping season – butter lambs are always a big hit (don’t get me started), though personally I like to head over to grab a bite to eat at one of the many food offerings.
To me there have always been plenty of food offerings at the market. But if there was more overall diversity, then I might find myself heading over more often. Apparently, the market is looking for “unique crafters, ethnic vendors, fresh food and flower retailers”. Maybe it would be a good move for some of the established businesses around the area to set up at the market in this time of economic disparity. And as long as the price for space is reasonable, the market could be an excellent opportunity for a start-up business to establish a clientele. Who knows, if the business takes off, the vendor could end up seeing permanent placement at the market. After all, there is power in numbers, and the more good vendors that buy into the historic market, the more shoppers will rely on the destination for seasonal and year ’round shopping needs.
