Farmers Market in Peril!

In case you haven't heard, the farmers market that has been held at Trout Lake for the last 13 years has to move locations this year because the community centre is undergoing renovations. The market society has applied to the city to have the market shifted to the north parking lot (technically John Hendry Park) but they need your help!

Please go to this site and sign the petition. They need 2000 signatures by April 1st.

The market has been a really excellent weekly summer event for the East Van community. Moving it to some other location, not as well established and familliar, would definitely affect all the vendors and consumers in a negative way.

Cross posted a bit.
