How would I get the people of McKinley Park fresh produce throughout the year? How do I make this somewhere where all ages will go? How do I get space for a community market?

There is a pavilion where tables can be set up for community events such as a community market and a lot of open space that can also be used for community events or if nothing is going on is a great place to have a picnic or read a book.
