The farmers I have come to know over the last 25 years at the Royal Oak Farmers Market are some of the hardest working people I know. The market is the gem of Royal Oak, a rare community centric event that defines the city for the thousands of customers who struggle to find parking every week. Hopefully this will be rectifiedÂ as most of the people I speak with go elsewhere because of the parking issue. The city allows their employees to take up over 25% of the parking spaces available, yet they struggle to figure out how to increase revenue. It does not take a business degree to figure out the problem that is obvious to anyone who spends the 20 to 30 minutes it takes to find a space.
