Letter: Coastside Farmers Market field notes

By on Wed, July 1, 2009

This week, in addition to celebrating our Nation’s Independence,  I am going to celebrate a temporary bout of independence from overly long letters! 

SO—without further ado— the answer to Burning Question number 70409:

Yes! We are open on the 4th of July.  We will likely close early so everyone can get to the Parade, which starts at noon, but we will be open as usual at 9 AM.

Answer to part 2 of Burning Question Number 70409:

Nope.  We can’t change opening hours:  we would if we could, but we can’t so we aren’t.*

But if you want to make sure you get your red, white and blue potatoes so you can make a lovely tri-colored pan-full to go with your seriously independent free range chickens, or your blueberries, strawberries and raspberries for your equally gorgeous and commemorative Independence Day desserts, why come on down to Pacifica on Wednesday afternoon, where you can stock up on everything you need for a bang-up wingding. 

Pacifica’s own Jay Howlett will provide the entertainment on Wednesday afternoon, and Pacifica’s own Don Rowell Trio will light your fuse on Saturday.

And thanks to our sponsors from the Harbor- the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, Huck Finn Sport Fishing and Sierra West for your support of the Market, but also for your support of the men and women of The American Legion Post 474, to whom we all owe a huge debt of gratitude.

See you at the Market,
