A popular farmers' market in downtown Moline may soon be accessible year round.
The market offers fresh food, live music, and showcases the area's small businesses and rich culture.
Now, in 2018, the outdoor market may be moving indoors - sort of. According to Ray Forsythe, Moline's Planning and Development Director, Bob and Maria Ontiveros have a plan to build a permanent structure and create an open air market.
"They will be able to have 365 days a year activity in Mercado," he explained live on Good Morning Quad Cities on Thursday, December 14th. "They're also planning a mixed-use building so retail, office, and residential are right on the corner literally across the street from where we're at right now."
That spot was The Q, located on the corner of 5th Avenue and 12th Street. It's opening in January 2018. To see a sneak peek at The Q and the new Element hotel, click here.
