This Friday, a new pop-up farmers market will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in front of the Henderson Police Department on Breckenridge Street. Backed by the Green Rural Redevelopment Co-op, the market will provide an outlet for the Latino Micro Market Farmers Association. There are 37 people participating in the association, with each having one or two garden beds. The co-op turned four vacant lots within the city into working farms, according to Green Rural Development Executive Director Henry Crews. The organization hopes to expand in the future.
