Detroit & Grosse Pointe Park reach agreement over farmer's market

GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich. (WXYZ) - Two cities came together Wednesday for a major agreement, all in hopes of bringing Detroit and Grosse Pointe Park together.

The barns at Kercheval and Alter are for a temporary farmer's market in Grosse Pointe Park.

Detroiters say they're being blocked off from the area. Now, leaders on both sides are trying to find a gateway to unify.

Both cities are working on providing more ways to Kercheval by constructing a new permanent public market accessible to the entire block.

Grosse Pointe Park will remove the current barns, as Detroit prepares to install a new roundabout, and knock out nearby blight.

Both sides are looking forward to coming together.

The temporary farmer's market is expected to be removed by the end of the season in November. The other changes will take place throughout the rest of the year.
