They also want to make it easy for people to set up a booth; they're charging $15 for a spot at the market and working with local businesses to sponsor booths for vendors who can't af- ford the fee. The organizers said they ex- pected the location to bring heavy foot traffic from businesses through- out the market day. Collins Family Dentistry and Banner Bank donated parking lot space for the booths and customer parking. "Everyone has been so sup- portive, it's almost overwhelm- ing," Morgan said. When people hear about the organization, they offer their time, goods and services to help. "You don't even have to ask." The support is telling organizers that there is a need for the Cheney Commtmity Market, and they are al- ready planning ways to expand and partner with other local businesses. The group is planning several events in addition to the market, includ- ing a treasure hunt hitting several Photo by Becky Thomas Vendors set up shop, in the fore- ground selling fresh honey, at the Cheney Community Market on Tuesday. Cheney businesses this Saturday, Aug. 25. "The idea is to get people into the businesses to talk to the owners and learn something new about each business," Morgan said. The free event starts and ends at the Cheney Craft Stampede, held at Bi-Mart Arena Saturday and Sun- day. Morgan said the Cheney Events Association, which hosts the Craft Stampede, will be a great partner for the market as it grows. Organizers also hope to make the Cheney Community Market a year-round staple, and are currently seeking an indoor space for the fall and winter. "We have big dreams," Morgan said. But so far the organization is working on a small budget, u 'tflizing donations, social media and the skills of volunteers to make the market a success. But Morgan and Harman said that fundraisers will help pay for the operation of the market. As for renting an indoor space for the market, perhaps a surprise inheri- tance from a long-lost uncle would come along, they joked. "Seriously, though, we're just trying to make this as positive as it can be," Morgan said. "People in Cheney are so supportive. It will work out."
