Did you even know something like this (LINK) existed? How long has Farmington had a Farmer's Market? Before I left for graduate school there wasn't one... at least not one I can remember. Sure, three years of health and wellness school may have changed what I notice a bit, but still!
I mean, we have an awesome Farmer's Market now! Natural Grocer's even decided it was time that they could set up shop here (before there was just that place in Hutton plaza — what's their name? They're great as well). Would any of this been supported ten years prior? I think not.
No, more Durangatangs are NOT moving down into Farmington, Farmington itself is switching, growing, changing. It's getting WELL... er. It's following a national tidal wave that is realizing health is our greatest wealth, and that we should take control of it ourself — not waiting for some medical miracle cure to come and save us. It's exciting! It's exciting to see a place like Andrea Kristina's selling burgers made out of grass fed buffalo meat — come on! That's crazy!
So stop whining and complaining. It's so ghetto here. NO, YOUR ATTITUDE IS "GHETTO HERE". Take your pessy (short for pessimistic) perspective someplace else and get out of the way of those who are making a difference.
Farmington has had a farmer's market for some time, I just didn't notice it (figures!). The farmer's market moved to a more visible and accesible location not too many years ago — there is clearly more demand. Something cool is happening.
