Hey, are you doing anything tomorrow night? If you're like us and you love the Heart of the City Farmers' Market (Wednesdays and Sundays on UN Plaza), you might want to consider going to City Hall, sidestepping the throngs of happy marrying couples, and going to room 250 at 5:00. See, Mayor Gavin has introduced legislation that would turn the operation of the market over to the city's Real Estate division, taking it away from its current board of directors.
The idea is that the city could somehow make more money off of the market, and use the extra to help close the budget deficit. Frankly, we're skeptical. If you can't make the meeting tomorrow, you can always go down there now and sign one of the petitions they have at the table pictured above. And pick up some strawberries...yum.
