I'm all for promoting the farmers market and doing what is right. One thing though, I'd like to see more actual farmers involved. From what I understand 90% (approx) of the vendors are people whom buy their produce from the food terminal. Although buying food from the terminal still supports farmers I fail to see why we subsidize space for these people in a publically owned and operated facility. If I can buy the same stuff at Fortino's whom are employing people and paying full commercial taxes to make the community a better place than why subsidize a select few whom are making even more profit. Let's provide an amazing space for the people who actually farm and work so hard.
