Albany - Plans are renewed for a farmer's market in downtown Albany. Albany Tomorrow Inc. hopes to apply for $25,000 grant to start up a farmer's market. The grant is through a private organization called The Project for Public Spaces Incorporated.

ATI wouldn't build and run the farmer's market, instead the grant would go to a separate yet-to-be-established farmer's market board. The board would use the one year grant to find private investors to build and run the farmer's market.

"This is a grant that will allow you to plan, organize and implement a marketplace which is defined as sort of a hybrid of a farmer's market and arts, crafts, other services, and institutional vendors as well," said ATI President Tommy Chatmon.

The farmer's market could be built at land at Jackson Street and Broad or near Riverfront Park.
