Hey Local Farmer... don't "take the bait" from the "overtaxed" poster- just ignore know-it-all pompous fools. Most feel the way Mavis and Mountaingirl do... and we appreciate you being there.By the way, have you ever stood by one of those local farmers that you think can't make a living from the local traffic at the market and counted the dollars they take? Have you ever counted how many truck loads of corn are sold out of that market in one single day? Have you ever picked in the field until after dark and gotten yourself up at 4AM to finish loading your truck in order to arrive and set up at the market in time for the 8AM customer? Until you try it, don't knock it.
Also... for the most part, UC farmers are all accommodated with spaces prior to allocation of spaces to the majority of crafters. Everybody wins... including the buyers. It is built... THAT ship has already sailed, so appreciate the positive and support it.
