Outdated Farmers’ Market Rules
Farmers’ Market rules MUST be changed!
Fruits & vegetables rot in sweltering heat; they can’t sell anything!
I saw some delicious fresh veggies that I wanted to take home before the pooch melted onto the sidewalk. It was around 2:45pm. As the vendor told me the price and I had money in my hand about to make the exchange, some “market monitor” prohibited the transaction – and I left with no veggies. The market is supposed to open at 3:00pm on the dot – and “no sales are to be made prior to that time.” Hogwash!
First of all, the food was essentially rotting each second it was baking in the summer heatwave – so why not sell them the minute you have it on the table? Secondly, from what I understand, this is a very outdated rule, and serves no sensible purpose in today’s day and age.
Can you name one single, logical reason why it’s still enforced?
