The Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership is working to establish a farmers' market on top of the Wallace Deck on Rosemary Street. A market, organizers say, would offer local farmers and producers another outlet for their goods and help meet the growing demand for locally produced food. And it would make good use of a public space that has always been under-used. No argument that the top of the Wallace Deck never has been fully taken advantage of. It's the site of occasional events, but we're guessing that relatively few residents have ever been up there; the top of a parking deck isn't the most natural gathering place, unless your town is flooded or under attack by zombies. Still, it is a public space that could be put to more use. It's terraced, with some trees and an amphitheater. If local farmers think the demand is sufficient for a downtown market -- even with farmers markets (with free parking) already established in Carrboro, Hillsborough, Southern Village and Fearrington -- give it a shot. That space is at least as well-suited for more frequent use for other sorts of events -- concerts, performances, arts and crafts bazaars ... It might help, though, if we could call it something with a little more punch than "the top of the parking deck."
