The word is final, Canada Lands is not renewing the lease for Calgary Farmers' Market.
We all hoped it wasn't turn this way but I guess the money and power of large corporations and developers is still stronger than the thousand of voices and the hundreds of vendors that the market brings every year.
I guess we only hope that now that they need to move later next year, they can just move somewhere in the city and not to some long-distance drive like the development in Balzac or some cookie-cutter community.
As visitors to the market and citizens of this great but yet narrow minded city, let's rally up to give the market a good run for its last year there and let's give our support to all the vendors.
We will miss you but let's hope we can visit you in the later future on a location that's convenient to the residents of this city.
I invite everyone in this blog community to share ideas on how to make their last year at the Base a successful year!
