Council members viewed potential designs last week for a proposed multi-use farmers’ market facility and voiced approval to move forward with a proposed food truck court to be located between United Bank and Piggly Wiggly.

Trey Gavin, senior vice president and partner with ESG Engineering, presented an open-air design for the multi-use facility under consideration for the corner of East Gordon and Hightower Streets, estimated to cost between $900,000 and $1 million.

The 54-foot by 120-foot pavilion style structure shown to council featured a large fireplace at one end, detached bathrooms and storage, courtyards, and a possible concession area to create a “farmers’ market feel,” Gavin said.
