Relocated Farmer’s Market

179

Why in the world was our farmers market moved to Park and Rec?? We have been spending our winter vacations in FMB for 28 years and were so disappointed to learn that now we have to drive to the new location (next to the Community Pool at Bay Oaks). Even the vendors I spoke with didn’t know the reason, and added that business has not been near as good for them as when they were located under the bridge.

Tonight we also learned that the entertainers in Times Square now have to pay for additional insurance, AND an annual permit to be there. We love this beach island and although we don’t want to stand in the way of progress, please don’t make too many changes. As you ponder the Grand Resorts proposal, remember that there is a lot of charm in remaining “small town.”
