Before the City Council proceeds, a June 21 meeting will be held to hash out details, including the location and schedule for a market, said City Manager Jim Colangelo.
Colangelo said if merchants’ concerns can be resolved, a farmers market would be a positive note for downtown, where sales tax revenues have been flat in recent months.
“It’s not a crisis situation,” Colangelo said. “But we’re just concerned that we’re not seeing the type of business that we used to.”
You hit the nail on the head, Jimmy. Locals have quit shopping in downtown P.G. ever since the Carmel crowd moved in. Farmer’s Markets tend to be local centric. And none of the shops that oppose one are ever open when they take place anyway.
