See you in November!

To the editor,

Sadly, the Sanibel Farmer’s Market is over for the season… but what a delight it all was! Kudos to Jean and Betsy for a creative idea beautifully executed, and thanks to the City of Sanibel for providing a lovely island-style location. My friends and I look forward to the return of many happy participants, both vendors and buyers, in November.

One small thing: as I walked to the market on Sunday, I noticed how many people were leaving with loaded plastic bags. I would love to see us all take a small step in the direction of eco-awareness and bring our own reusables for those lovely organic and locally grown fruits, veggies, preserves and bakery treats. It just doesn’t make sense to feed our bodies so well and risk polluting the environment at the same time.

Thank you in advance to everyone who takes this idea to heart — or is already doing it.
