  • Wonderin'

    Has there been any consideration of returning to the Gibson Aiken midweek location?

    • I wish they would. The

      I wish they would. The Whetstone path is just a little too far for me to walk with my medical problems but Gibson Aiken is a very central location. The Wednesday market last year was terrible. Very few farms- not nearly as much variety in produce as other years. It really seemed like most folks were there for the Thai Anon food truck.It was very disappointing and it’s juts not a great location. Trying to get in and out of the co op parking lot is a deterrent to a lot of people. Downtown is a much nicer space and it also means that senior citizens who are at the Senior Center can also go to the market.
