Warring farmers markets

This is happening in Santa Rosa; apparently a feud has started between two farmers markets, sparked by a controversial prohibition to keep vendors from selling at more than one market on the same day. “Complaints feed market feud,” by Derek Moore, of the Press Democrat.

“According to minutes of the meeting provided by Downing, participants stated their belief ‘that the Santa Rosa area is not big enough to support two large farmers markets taking place on the same day at the same time in the same city.'”
