Recently, I saw a report on WBKB TV which mentioned what a great atmosphere there is at the Alpena Farmers Market. I was very happy to see the Farmers Market getting such good publicity. Our family shops there and is thankful to have access to locally grown high quality produce as well as meat, eggs, coffee, garden plants, baked goods and crafts. The farmers are always willing to answer questions and give suggestions about their products.
Our family has purchased several of the tee shirts which promote the Farmers Market. When we wear these shirts invariably people make positive comments about the Market. Customers of the Market are really excited about the proposed expansion and enclosure of the Market which will enable the farmers to extend the length of the Market season.
There is talk about the possibility of other uses for the Farmers Market and surrounding area. Many customers of the Market would be greatly disappointed if the current plans for the Market expansion and enclosure were to be drastically changed or delayed due to these ideas.
The Farmers Market is a gem. Let's keep the current plan going forward in a timely manner.
