    Where can I start. When I went to this farmers market the very first time they started I was disappointed. Limited stands for fruit and veggies which is what FARMERS MARKET is suppose to be about,NOT jewerly, clothes and sweets. Yesterday I went back for the first time in a long time to give it another try and OMG!!! TEN TIMES WORSE THAN THE FIRST TIME. ONLY 2 STANDS WITH LIMITED FRUIT AND VEGGIES, AND THE REST WHICH WERE ONLY 5 STANDS, WERE ABOUT JEWERLY, SWEETS, ONE OF FLOWERS AND ONE OF BREADS. THE SADEST FARMERS MARKET I HAVE EVER SEEN, EVER!!!! I ASKED WHY THIS WAS SO LIMITED TO ONE OF THE VENDORS, THEY COULDN’T EVEN ANSWER IT, BUT DID ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREED WITH ME THAT IT WAS VERY VERY LIMITED. YOU PLACE SIGNS ALL OVER THE PLACE TO GO TO THIS PLACE ONLY TO WASTE PEOPLE’S TIME. I’VE GONE TO EVERY FARMERS MARKET FROM SOLANA BEACH, TO UTC, TO ENCINITAS TO ESCONDIDO WHICH IS THE LARGEST AND BEST FARMERS MARKET EVER, THEY HAVE EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING YOU WANT OF FRESH FRUIT AND VEGGIES AND YES THEY ALSO HAVE A SMALL SECTION WHERE THEY SELL JEWELRY, BUT, THEY HAVE OVER TWO BLOCKS OF VENDORS. YOU GUYS HAVE A HUGE SPACE TO BE ABLE TO PUT MANY VENDORS THAT SELL FRUIT AND VEGGIES FIRST AND FOREMOST, THE PARKING LOT IS HUGE AND THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN DO? I WAS THERE 5 MINUTES AND I WAS DONE. NOTHING THERE. A TERRIBLE WASTE OF TIME AND EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. STOP PUTTING SIGNS EVERYWHERE AND MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A FARMERS MARKET GOING ON, WHERE IT ISN’T TRUE AND ITS A TOTAL SCAM.
