Thank you for the article on January 30th regarding our awesome local Farmers Market at City Center in Yuba City. 

As a shopper of the Yuba City Farmers Market I find it disconcerting that the city is trying to collect from the Farmers Market insurance coverage of their event when the responsibility of a man tripping on the sidewalk, which is the city of Yuba City’s responsibility (personally I think people should be responsible for watching where they are walking). Since this action can have a detrimental impact on the people who live and work by jeopardizing not having such a wonderful Farmers Market. Besides the public not having such a place to purchase direct from our farmers/merchants; it also impacts farmers in our area. It  adds unnecessary hardship to our farmers during a difficult time in having to deal with this.  I hope that the Yuba City Council persons will see the negative impact of this issue and instruct staff to drop this suit against our Farmers Market Events Insurance.
