The U.S. Conference of Mayors‘ Leadership Committee is in town – and more than 20 of them came to High Point for a visit this afternoon (before it started to rain!). WSB contributing journalist Kathy Mulady was there – she says the High Point Market Garden (32nd/Juneau; map) was one stop on a tour Mayor Nickels (who is the Conference of Mayors’ president) was leading while the visitors were here. He posed with some of the gardeners:

Hien Nguyen is the Market Garden Master at High Point:

He told Kathy that neighborhood residents are welcome to stop at the garden any day (bring cash) to purchase whatever vegetables are ready to harvest. The farm stand has been open Tuesdays from 3 to 7 pm; Julie Bryan from the city’s P-Patch program, which manages the market gardens, tells WSB that next Tuesday is scheduled to be its last official day. (The market garden also offers produce subscriptions with weekly pickups – find out more here.)

  1. Keep an eye on Mayor Cornett. No telling WHAT he might slip into his pocket to sneak back to Ok. City.

  2. The High Point market garden is the best “pea-patch” in the whole city, and that is saying a great deal. We have many excellent ones in our city.

  3. I agree! Highpoint has the best gardens (there are actually 3 now). I love the folks at the Market Garden, and the produce they sell is amazing and cheap!
