The Keene Farmers Market is a valuable resource bringing the freshest local food to an easily accessible location in our community. The city of Keene notified the coordinators of the market, just 6 weeks prior to the opening day for the outdoor market, that they will need to relocate. There has yet to be an acceptable location selected.
The market has been off Main Street behind The Colonial Theatre for 15 years. At a time when the farmers are busy preparing, they are needing to find a new suitable location. Finding a new location and communicating it to the public takes time and resources. In addition, the change would create less traffic and profitability, as change always does.
Keene is fortunate to have fresh local produce and locally made items easily available in one place. It is an important part in creating a strong, healthy, sustainable community. The efforts of the farmers and vendors must be supported, and this burden of relocating should be given ample time and thought.
Please sign this petition asking to keep the current location of the Farmer's Market for this season providing the proper time to make this change. This is important for those who are providing this valuable service and to the community of Keene.
