Guelph Farmers Market Remains Open – Oh, & Thanks for Nothing!


You. Yes You. Thanks for nothing. Ruining the livelihoods of hardworking folks at our Farmers Market was a class act. Lots of damage and stress to the vendors along with our city staff – Well done. I hope you can feel the sarcasm, because I’m laying it on pretty thick.

Thank you,

  1. The problem is that the morons who did this have no idea of the chaos they have caused most of the time, and if they do – they simply don’t care. Grumpy cat knows that what goes around comes around and they will be found and dealt with before the court system.. Maybe they should volunteer picking the fruit and vegetables for the vendors early every market morning, plus pick up garbage all summer on market days, as part of their community service to go with the slap on the wrist and probation they will get Maybe then they have just a little idea of how much hard work goes into it each and every time it’s open. Thank you to all that make such a wonderful place for local products.
