Your view: Farmers market is good for everyone

As a long time resident of La Jolla, with children attending Bird Rock Elementary, I was quite excited to learn that a farmers market was coming to Bird Rock. … For years, La Jolla Elementary has had a monopoly on this revenue-generating forum and now our school will reap similar benefits.

Those against the market point out problems with parking on the streets, issues with the bike path, and so on. These issues are ever present and not new. Keeping in mind that the streets in front of our houses are public (his is a limited intrusion for a short period of time with a positive outcome.

If the market proves to be a nuisance, the city will not renew the limited use permit that it will surely issue in the first instance. Also, it is unlikely that the organizers, all of whom live in the neighborhood, will allow the market to be a nuisance.

Let’s all try to focus on the positive things … What a great place for friends to congregate on a Friday evening, enjoy each other’s company, catch up, allow their kids to play and have fun and to purchase locally grown fruits and vegetables.
