The good news is that we have one.
The bad news is that we have two… some organization SNAFU or feud has created two farmer’s markets. One is at 10 am in the parking lot of the Big Bend Thrift Store, the other is at 9 am in the parking lot of Baeza’s thriftway. Many of the folks that I know here in town prefer Farmstand Marfa to our Alpine version. I take this with a grain of salt; it might just be an excuse to drive to Marfa and catch up with friends. They say that Farmstand has a better selection, is more fun, etc. Click here to learn more about Farmstand Marfa.
My advice to our local folks is to get together and have ONE FARMER’S MARKET AT ONE CONSISTENT TIME WITH ONE LEADER/ORGANIZER. Everyone benefits. Even if there’s an innocuous reason to meet at two different locations with two different times, it seems a little demanding to expect purchasers to spend an hour and a half at two different locations.
Let’s hear your comments on this issue. Also, I’d love to get comments from the organizers… these are just my general impressions. Click here to enter the post and leave a comment.
