Just another way for our city to sneak $50, 000 into their downtown project. The farmer's market has been at the pavilion for years, and now this year it's downtown?? How convenient that it will be receiving an upgrade now that it is on Delta Ave. Don't expand parking in the park, upgrade the pavilion, or build a new building for the market, dump it into our dwindling downtown that has two more businesses closing this weekend.

Look at the ‘boost’ as a positive move.

Once the market gets more exposure,

farmers should be able to sell more of everything.

Profits will increase, and

those newfound monies could be

diverted into ‘your’ pet projects:

DO (not Don't) expand parking in the park,

DO upgrade the pavilion, or

DO build a new building for the market,

DO dump excess profit(s) into our dwindling downtown that has two more businesses (not)

DON’T close them this weekend, a turn-around is just around the corner, learn to be patient,

republicans assure us

’good-times’ are coming and,

the masses are too demanding!

And, if this doesn't 'pan' out have the farmers grow medicinal weeds...

Clearly, everything will look better once we relieve their 'pain'.
