Where are the markets?


To the editor:

One of the joys of summer is the farmer’s markets that appear bringing fresh, delicious food to the neighborhood. But this year, as has happened last year, we in Riverdale will not enjoy the market at Riverdale Neighborhood House.

We know that the city budget is tight, and this is not to lay blame anywhere or on anyone. However, this is to say that this is the opening of a determined effort to raise the issue of the markets and to make sure it is an item on every agenda.

Much good comes from the market here — not just healthy food, but also teen employment. I hope people will make their voices heard through letters, meetings and phone calls to legislators. The sweet taste of that picked-last-night peach calls to us.
