The recent editorial Farm-to-table meshes with Astorias rebirth (The Daily Astorian, May 12) is misleading on at least a couple of fronts. The Thursday afternoon River People Farmers Market in Astoria is one of the many projects of North Coast Food Web.
It is not a spinoff of the Astoria Sunday Market. It was started as a way to connect local folks with their farmers, to incubate small producers, and to provide a dollar match program to help those on food assistance access healthy, delicious, local food.
Additionally, I distinctly remember buying bread from what was then The Bread Collective, and is now Blue Scorcher Bakery and Cafe, long before they sold at the Sunday Market.
The Astoria Sunday Market is a singular event benefiting our community. It doesnt need inaccurate information to boost its resume.
