  1. Maybe Schnirman can get some money out of these “Farmers”. They pay no license fees,taxes or rent in our debt plagued City unlike our local merchants that are taxed and charged fees constantly.

  2. I get what you’re saying, but you kind of miss the point.

    The Farmer’s Market offers organic and farm raised food that is actually grown on Long Island & upstate. It might not be Long Beach, but it’s still grown in NY which indirectly helps the state as a whole. It’s better than Peru or where ever else the food from Waldbaums and the other stores comes from.

    Farmer’s Market is local produce grown by New York Farmers.

    You cannot get the type of food sold at the farmer’s market anywhere in Long Beach. Trust me. Maybe if our local stores tried harder I wouldn’t have to drive all the way out east in the off season to get farmer’s market equivalent. Have you ever eaten a tomato that is grown on a NY farm compared to one that is grown in south america, frozen and shipped to a supermarket aisle? Big difference. That might not mean anything to you, but there are folks here who don’t want to eat fruits & veggies loaded with pesticides or meat & cheese that isn’t loaded with nitrates and hormones.

    As far as taxes are concerned. I’m sure the Farmer’s Market pays some sort of fee to use Kennedy Plaza. It’s not a charity. It’s still a business. Is it a lot? I don’t know, but I am 100% sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Long Beach is in a financial Crisis.
