Worthington Farmers Market: March 18
Can one market serve everyone?
"Sipping on their lattes, deep in conversation, they care more about the scene than the cilantro. They might purchase a breakfast taco, he observed, but no basil. Maybe a pint of strawberries, but no rhubarb. And in their unhurried schmoozing they clog up the aisles like arterial plaque, impeding the flow of serious shoppers looking for actual produce. But that’s if the serious shoppers can even get to the market in the first place, because parking stinks.
“It’s more of a social event than a shopping event,” says Stephen Paferi, a grower at the new market who jumped ship from the other one."
An opinion published in August of 2016 asks, "Have farmers markets been spoiled by their own success?"
While the article makes a few assumptions and generalizations, it does beg the question of whether or not a market can serve everyone? Can a market coexist in the space where buyers can buy and hipsters can be hip?
For the sake of our producers, let us coexist!
