Famer's Market in San Dimas

Note that the San Dimas city council race is, to my knowledge, the only one thus far in which the Daily Bulletin is actually rooting for more challengers than incumbents. (Although they are for the reelection of Mayor Curt Morris they are also for Bruce Colburn and Jesse Ash over John Ebiner.)

Anyhow, the San Dimas Farmer's Market Rules!

[My deepest apologies, I really can't help myself].

As of right now, it doesn't, because there isn't one in existence. All the cool foothill cities already have a farmer's market, of course. I agree with a San Dimas resident who emailed to tell me he thinks it is a great idea. Here's some more info, via the City of San Dimas Weekly E-dition:

San Dimas City Council To Hear Public Input Regarding Farmer's Market Proposal

The proposed Farmer's Market would take place on Monday evenings on Bonita Avenue from San Dimas Avenue to Monte Vista Avenue during the months of April through October from 5:00 - 9:00pm, with the option of expanding to Cataract Avenue based upon success of the event.
