After opening in October, vendors and customers dwindled Market from page Al back twice, but that was it for fresh produce in the warmer months. ''It was a catch -22, the people would say they want the produce, we would get the fanners in there and the farmers were sitting all day and it's not like the community was running over there buying the produce," she said. Fuiell-Salimia said the low turnout of vendors resulted in few customers. When she got the call that the market was closing in late June, she didn't even have to ask why. She said with so many vendors in the area already having found profitable markets and venues to set up at, the Liberty market had tough competition, but it could still be a great ven dor venue. If given the right incentives, she said she'd try the market again if it reopens. Artemus Peterson with Team B A.M. (Becoming a Man) works with youth at Cleveland Avenue Homes, located behind the Liberty market. He said he was dis appointed that produce from the community gar den in Cleveland Avenue Homes didn't make it to the market. He said there were plans to teach gardening to the youth there and have them sell the produce at the market. "We were going to teach them the garden aspect of it, so they could learn how they could earn their own income," he said. Peterson was disap pointed that market didn't deliver what it promised. He also said the fence around it felt uninviting and put a barrier between it and the people who were supposed to use it. Jim Shaw, former chair man of the now defunct Liberty Community Development Corporation, said when Ruben Gonzalez, the city's now retired development project supervisor, approached him with the idea for the mar ket, he thought it was going to be good for Liberty Street. Shaw originally believed Liberty CDC was going to run the market before Miller won a bid for it, and said he'd gotten so many calls from vendors at the time, that he had to turn them away. He said he was unsure why it didn't work, but Liberty Street is the worse off for it. "I wish it had stayed open, it was a good thing for the community," he said. Shaw has publicly said that a city official asked him if he was interested in running the market now, but he said he was no longer interested in operat ing it.
