I just don’t get it. First the Laredo Main Street people announced the Farmer’s Market, then it was canceled (hmmm… similar pattern to the planning meetings) with the statement that not enough vendors could be found. Bordertown Blues pointed out the fruit stand not too far from my house. This weekend, I found the above three vendors on the streets of Laredo – and that does not even include the Arkansas Street vendor.
Soooo… how about if we ask these guys to come together just one day out of the month? Heck, they can just put up a quarter of their produce and that would start the trend. I know it is hard for one person to put all this together but the community keeps saying “we want to see this and we are willing to help.” Or as my friend over at Keep Laredo Beautiful says “just go for it” which is exactly what the Earth Day planning committee did for the mini-farmer’s market during the Earth Day event.
Maybe we could have even asked this farm to sell us some of their onions:
Ok, ok, I will lay off the Farmer’s Market issue. Even I am getting on my own nerves about it.
