Farmer's Market Director

We’ve had several calls and comments about the ad in the paper for a Farmer’s Market Director at $10 an hour.  This is more than many of our county employees make, and we’ve been asked, “Who’s paying for this position?” Supposedly there is still Grant money left over to pay for it.   The ad says this director is to “supply the Farmer’s Market with Georgia grown fruit and vegetables.”  Isn’t this market supposed to be a place that our local people can take their homegrown items and sell them?  Why do we need to pay someone $10/hour to bring in fruits and vegetables?  If you know why this position is needed, please let us know.  We’ve also confirmed that the lot that was being used by the Farmer’s Market will no longer be available.  The taxpayers put money into that lot over the past few years.   The Extension Service does not know where the Farmer’s Market will be located in the future.
