I am still in disbelief that the Turlock City Council is considering changing the Turlock Certified Farmers Market from a non-profit with local vendors to a farmers market for-profit with vendors outside of the area. If the market changes, that surely will mean the prices will rise, the quality of the fruits and vegetables will not be as fresh and local businesses will not have a local farmers' market to sell their produce. Shouldn't the City Council support the local businesses and let the people enjoy the benefits of our TCFM?
The following is what is stated on the City of Turlock's website: City Council Members Mission Statement: Our purpose is to enhance the quality of life of all Turlock residents through actively serving, pursuing excellence, and reflecting our four core values: Service, Accountability, Compassion, Respect.
Maybe the Turlock City Council should read their mission statement.
