1890 Ranch shopping center has furthermore lost the business of our family. 1890 Ranch Shopping Center is smart for not having a facebook account or website which allows for comments from the public. They would be getting some severely negative comments at this point. Thank you Cedar Park Farms to Market for your facebook and Carla for all your hard work trying to keep the market at 1890 Ranch. We understand that the change was mostly out of your control and it is good business to remain on good terms with 1890 Ranch. We love love love Cedar Park Farms to Market and am thrilled the new location at Lakeline mall area will allow for even more vendors. I used to love the 1890 Ranch shopping center but have become disgusted with them now that they have pushed away a great community opportunity. Thank you Cedar Park Farms to Market for giving us disappointed customer's a place to vent our frustrations with 1890 Ranch. It's certainly closer than the Austin Farmer's markets. I'll be at the Lakeline location next week and will be figuring out which stores in that area will meet my other shopping needs. It is the responsibility of the consumers to contact all the businesses within 1890 Ranch Shopping Center with our disapproval. I'm ready to boycott 1890 Ranch. I'm thinking I will start off with phone calls to management and probably written farewell letters, at the very least. I live off 1431 in Round Rock 3 miles from the Ikea store intersection of I-35, so traveling in timely manner on Saturday morning will be more difficult.

Thank you Director Carla Jenkins for all your hard work trying to keep the farmers market at 1890 Ranch. We understand that the change was out of your control. 1890 Ranch Shopping Center mistakenly pushed away a great community opportunity. We'll be at the new Lakeline location and will be figuring out which stores in that area will meet our other shopping needs, since our weekly Saturday shopping location is relocated."
