It is incredibly unfortunate that the town of Woodside has prohibited this wonderful community from having the farmer's market continue! I hope and pray that the Town Council will quickly see the error of their policy and make the necessary changes to allow it to continue.

There is a farmer's market in La Honda, 5 miles down the road, another at the Canada College campus, 7 miles away. Woodside is within it's right and General Plan to regulate this activity. Sometimes the self-etitled are not just in the flatlands. Now if the town could do something about the crazy Wunderlich parking and the Sand Hill Horse park driveway, well, THAT would be something.

That's great that La Honda and Canada have Farmers Markets but there are many residents farther south on Skyline Blvd. that would love to have a market in the mountains that is closer. La Honda is only a few miles further but it's a few miles too far for many of us. I don't think that makes us "self-entitled". We'd like to support our local farmers and craftsmen, as well as save gas on the long trek down a winding highway. Buying local is good for everyone.

I encourage the Town of Woodside reps & readers here to read the 8/12 article in the San Jose Mercury News on the benefits of local (in communities) Farmers Markets. I would love to be able to shop more fully at my closest commerce area (Skylonda) and hope that the Town of Woodside will amend their regulations to allow for that. I will still & always continue to support La Honda businesses - there is a need for both.
