Farmer’s markets help downtown businesses when located there

To the Editor,We totally agree with Lois Lane’s comments about the Farmer’s Market present location. We consumers were never asked about location, we’ve never had an issue with parking downtown, and vendors are now isolated.In the past we could walk or bike to the market. It advertised the unique local flavor of our town to visitors. Sadly, since the market moved, we have not visited the event. When we drove by the uninviting location we saw very few vendors or customers.When it was downtown, we supported the vendors, shopped in our stores and had lunch downtown. We admit to not participating with it now entirely because of the location. A stark parking lot holds no interest and Tecumseh has lost business on those days due to a poor decision in our opinion. Please bring the Farmer’s Market back downtown where we can enjoy our restaurants, shops and the friendly faces of our neighbors. Remember, once enticed to our Downtown, we realize 10 other items we need or want: fine cheese, a hammer, sewing items, artwork, a beer or mini corndogs, a fill up of gas or a gift. Please rethink the location. Kim BachnerTecumseh
