Looks like Mayor Anita Cereceda lost her ridiculous war against the Beach Baptist Church and Pastor Shawn Crister when she tried to shut down the Farmer’s Market and threatened to fine them if they continued to hold their weekly event.
Mayor Anita Cereceda also told him the event is in a “quiet zone” part of the island’s middle and that she had no intention of supporting it.
Her phones must have been ringing off the hook when she waged her attack against the Church. If she is not busy attacking church pastors, then she is busy focusing on shutting down beach chair rentals. She is obviously a very busy woman with such important things she seems to target. I am sure the voters will remember this antic of hers.
In spite of her war against the Farmer’s Market, they now have been issued a permit that will run until May. Vendor’s pay $40 for their spots and there is space for 56 vendors. The proceeds goes for their mission work. They still have space for more vendors, so if you are interested, give them a call.(239) 463-6452
We went today and the market was packed. They have people directing the traffic to keep the flow moving and organized.
There are fruits, veggies, barbeque, pastries, crepe’s soy candles, European pastries, gourmet cheeses, pickles, olives, hummus, pimento cheese hand made jewelry, beautiful stag horn ferns, hand crafted porch swings, hand-woven 30 Fathom doormats, crafts, paintings, photography, teas, purses, bags, and just about everything else you can think of. This is the busiest and most popular farmer’s market I have been to in a long time.
Mark your calendar for next Wednesday and head to 130 Connecticut St. Fort Myers Beach.
