What’s up with Green Bay Farmers’ Market?

So yesterday the family went to the Green Bay Farmers’ Market. Not sure if I’ll go to the Saturday one again.

Why you may ask? Because I don’t consider it a Farmers’ Market when you have a magazine/book vendor, a vendor selling rainwater holding tanks, food vendors selling hot food & drinks, and companies that have their own store locations throughout town.

Who in Green Bay approves these vendor permits? And why are vendors similar to the above allowed in? Their presence ruins a Farmers’ Market atmosphere since it should be local producers of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheese, etc who don’t have numerous store locations throughout town.

At least that’s my view.
