Your View: Bird Rock farmers market issues addressed

The BRE Farmers Market has raised many questions within the community.

One question is about the proximity of the two farmer’s markets. Will two farmer’s markets be successful being so close to one another? The answer is absolutely yes. An example is the Solana Beach market in relation to the Del Mar market. Both markets thrive even though they are in close proximity to one another. Farmer’s markets have a unique way of bringing communities together, much like coffee shops. The two Starbucks in La Jolla are within one block of local coffee shops, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and Pannikin Coffee Roasters on Girard.
All four are flourishing.

Another question was regarding parking. The BRE FM expects 40 to 60 vendors. Many residents will be walking or biking to attend. … The positive impacts from the BRE Farmer’s markets are numerous. The traffic and parking concerns will be on a much smaller scale and curtailed by the positive impact on our children’s future.
