To all of our loyal customers, market members and followers,
This past week has been truly challenging for us as we continue the fight to bring locally grown foods and sustainablity to the San Antonio community.
An unfortunate exchange took place after last Sunday's market, which we deeply regret. Although it was an isolated incident between long-time business associates and dear friends, the brief altercation has been exaggerated and manipulated in the media.
From a personal and business disagreement, sadly, this has the potential to have negative impact on the market members who have had no part in this situation.
We personally have many friends and associates from all ethnicities and wholeheartedly embrace cultural diversity. We lived in Mexico for over five years and have traveled extensively in many countries not as tourists, but as cultural travelers and very much respect the differences and celebrate our commonalities.
We greatly appreciate all of the support we have received for the market in this difficult situation. As for the future of our farmers market, we are evaluating at this point and ask for your continued support and patience.
