Why does Batavia have a market downtown and one at the downs? I could understand if we were a huge town that needed this - but wouldn't it be more cost effective to just have one market with more vendors? Another idea would be to have the market open on a day/time when people can actually go to it. Given that Batavia is for the most part a bedroom community meaning that most people leave Batavia during the day to go work someplace else - wouldn't it make the most sense to have the market on a day or at a time when the most people are in town - not during a weekday? If anyone could clarify this for me I'd appreciate it. I love going to markets but as I work in Rochester, like many do - I cannot go to a market held during a weekday - and in my experience it hasn't been worth going to the one downtown as the last few times I've been it consisted of about 4 vendors. There must be something that can be done. Why not just look at the times that Tops is the busiest and have the market during that time (if possible) - I am sure people would much rather buy local fresh fruits and vegetables from the market then the non-local items often sold at our supermarkets.
