Sorry Sarah to bombard you with questions. I have met several people that operate very small local farms and are unhappy with the way they've been treated by the board of the Farmer's Market. These individuals claim they can't afford the hundreds of dollars to vend at the market. They do not have large scale farms. Is there an initiative to have some type of a sliding scale in order to promote all levels of farming at the local level which would be a green initiative?
