SP Radio Podcast: Urbana’s Market at the Square

Download this week’s podcast here.

Urbana’s Market at the Square opens this Saturday, May 7. Market Director Lisa Bralts visited the studio to discuss the upcoming market season. Our conversation touched on a wide range of subjects:

  • Changes to this year’s market, including the decision to ban all pets
  • The huge growth of Urbana’s market and how it compares to other markets in Illinois and around the country
  • Why the community feels such ownership over the market and how Lisa balances the community’s needs with the needs of the farmers and government regulations
  • The advantages of buying food from local farmers
