Farmers V. Russia

New, 1 comment

The Civic Center Farmers' Market has been run by a non-profit for the last 27 years, but now the city wants to take it over, leaving the farmers very unhappy. Curbed's take: "... farmers remain rightly suspicious, as the city's track record for working in the best interests of small business or local farmers isn't so golden. Take the Alemany market, for example: the SFRED moves vendors around like pawns, and have raised their fees by 50 percent. Choice quote from local farmer Rosa DeSantis, who works at both markets, 'They don't ask what we think. What is this, Russia?'" [Chron, Curbed SF]
