  1. I love the idea of moving the market to downtown. When I first moved to Evanston I heard about the market but was confused as to where it was. Downtown is under utilized and I think it would add a greater sense of community and spirit as well as increase in revenue for existing businesses.

  2. Moving the market to fountain square to generate more activity for downtown businesses area doesn’t seem like it will make much sense unless the city plans on closing all the streets so the vendor trucks can be close to their stands and people can wander easily .
