The ABC has a strange complaint about the Saturday Farmers Market getting too many punters in which is somehow bad for business:
Beef and lamb producer Phil McCormack, from Crookwell on the NSW Southern Tablelands, says his market sales have fallen by 25 per cent in the last 18 months.
Mr McCormack says the weekly event is no longer a traditional farmers market and management needs to rethink its approach.
“People are sitting around and it’s getting in the road of people who want to just come in and buy and go home,” he said.
“I think we need to get back to the roots of what a genuine farmers market is and it’s genuine farmers.
“They take the elements, they take drought, they take floods, they take fire, they take everything into account, where the people that cook in their houses and do whatever they do in their houses, they don’t take anything like that into account.”
