• Farmers Market Has Chance, Though Small, of Staying at Present Location


    Despite published reports to the contrary, San Marino Mayor Dennis Kneier tells The Tribune that there is a possibility that the Farmers Market may stay at its present location past July. This decision, of course, is contingent upon where the public stands in the next two months.

    “There will be continued discussions and observations made about the Farmers Market,” said the mayor, who noted that people’s feelings about the Market may change in the next two months and that there may be less opposition.

    Public sentiment might have to dramatically shift in favor of the Market if it is to remain at its current location, leading many to believe that its eventual move may be a foregone conclusion.

    The mayor added that there are also two other possibilities that might arise: first, that there will be a more agreeable alternative location for the Market; and second, that the Market will shut down.

    San Marino City Staff earlier told The Tribune that the city’s Farmers Market will have to find a new location or be forced to shut down by the end of July. The original motion has been “massaged” after many concerned members of the community voiced their opposition to the Market at the most recent city council meeting.

    I go to the S.M. Farmers market every Friday and wouldn’t miss it. My husband and I had a delicious early dinner of a lobster roll and bacon Mac n cheese topped with dungeoness crab! Just Devine!!! All the while listening to live music and figuring out what fresh veggies and berries I would purchase for the weekend. The farmers market is a great addition and something to really look forward to. I wish it had been there for the rest of my family when I was growing up. It is well run, clean and well organized. What is not to like?? I look around at the other patrons and everyone is having a great time trying new things and enjoying a beautiful so cal afternoon in San Marino. Please allow the market to continue.

    Thank you.
