I much prefer to buy my produce from the stall on Alpine Road. I thought the stall provided a little extra income for the workers on Webb Ranch. Was that not the original idea? Yes, I do know that the produce is not only grown on the ranch and that much is shipped in; nevertheless, I see no need to shut it down and transfer the produce to stores. That may suit the Hubbard family's profit line, but it is a loss to our community.

Andrew - Hubbard family profit line??? the Webb family sold out to the Hubbards?

Since when are farmers markets referred to as "stores"?
