This is in response to a comment on my previous post regarding the current dust-up over the application to host a Sunday Farmer's Market at The Americana, which some say would hurt the Montrose Harvest Market. If the proposed market does draw traffic from the Montrose Harvest Market, that would be because there is demand in south and central Glendale that is currently poorly served by the Harvest Market's location.
Montrose is just too damn far away for me to go to the Harvest Market regularly.
Consider it from my perspective in SW Glendale. I usually patronize the downtown Glendale Farmers Market (one mile away) and the Atwater Village Farmers Market (also one mile away, and also on Sunday) - with two options less than one mile away, why would I drive six miles to Montrose?
From my location, even the awesome Hollywood farmers market on Ivar is closer than Montrose. It would be unfair to protect the Montrose Harvest Market by euthanizing an additional option for those of us in south Glendale.
