Today’s extra episode of Seattle Growth Podcast features an interview with a small business owner, an artist, and someone who wants to see a positive shared future for the people of Seattle as the city transforms. The episode tells a story of a community-led effort to make the Rainier Farmer Market a desirable place to visit and buy fresh produce. Gavin Amos, associate strategic coordinator for the Central Area Collaborative, shares how he connected Kevin Nguyen, owner of the Rainier Farmer Market, with artist Henry Luke to utilize the power of art to engender a sense of belonging for South End restaurants. Together, they have raised thousands of dollars and come together as a community to demonstrate an appreciation of the shared space. The interviews share perspectives on what changes in Seattle are most striking. The story also highlights challenges small businesses face and how the community can come together to address them.
