Letter: Burts support Farmers Market on the Square

Wendy Butler Burt writes:

It's a mystery to me how ANY city leader would not throw his/her full support behind the Farmers Market on the Square -- particularly when that support is about something as small as providing restroom keys to the Market's hard working vendors.

The Farmers Market on the Square is a HUGE asset to both the city and the county. It is long past time for ALL of our elected officials to recognize it as such.

My husband and I live a long drive from Columbia but the Farmers Market on the Square draws us into town every single Saturday morning during the season. The vendors' outstanding products bring us back week after week. But we also look forward to the atmosphere created by the Market -- the special camaraderie between vendors and their customers as well as our ample opportunity to see and visit with friends and acquaintances from Columbia and around the county.

The city benefits greatly from the Farmers Market on the Square. As such, the city should ensure that the Market's vendors AT LEAST can have the physical comfort of access to rest rooms. It's really not too much to ask. --Wendy Butler Burt
