Farmers market can’t plant signs on public land
Farmers market organizer Jane Lang made the request after the town asked the market to stop putting up the signs on public rights-of-way two weeks ago.
“I’ve had calls from people who have said to just put the signs up, but I want to do this the right way,” Lang said. “In the two weeks that the signs have been down, there has been a decline in attendance. People are driving around and thinking there might not be a market.”
“If the farmers market does not have the opportunity to use signs to attract business, it is not going to grow, and if it doesn’t grow, it could be done,” Bishop said.
Everett McBride, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, said organizers can still put up signs on private property. He said organizers could approach residents of high visibility areas and ask them if they could put signs on their property.
Selectman Pat Hargreaves supported the farmers market request, stating that the organizers had established that the market was a benefit to the community.
