Don’t squeeze the customer

I had so looked forward to the opening of our new Farmers’ Market here in Malibu, but frankly, the produce prices were outrageous. Everyone I’ve spoken to agrees.

I saw so many people walking away with nothing. What a pity.

I guess, that because this is Malibu, the sellers have decided to gouge. Sound familiar?

Also, wasn’t this represented to be produce from local growers? The vendors I spoke to were from Simi Valley, Bakersfield and such.

There was a wonderful turnout, so maybe, if the event expands, and there’s more competition, the prices will become more realistic. That would be wonderful.
