Farmers Market Complaints
Last week was the opening of my Farmers Market for the season. Wow, it was a great turnout! All the vendors were on time with an amazing local spread, the crowd was huge, the live music was perfect, and of course a couple great food trucks were serving up delicious fare. As a market manager, I could not have been more pleased. However, there were a few that came up to the information booth a little frustrated.
This got me thinking, how many of you have had a frustrating farmers market experience? What made you not want to come back to your local market, if anything?
I will be answering and addressing your complaints. Simply share a comment below and in a couple days you’ll see another post “Your Market Complaints Answered.”
Here are a few of the complaints that I heard last week:
- Why aren’t you open longer? I can’t get off work till 6 which means I never get here in time.
- I’ve been waiting for strawberries and by the time I got here they were all sold out. The farmers need to bring more.
- I didn’t bring cash, and now I have to leave to go to an ATM. I won’t be coming back because of the traffic.
What are your complaints?
