Re: “Best Farmers Market

Please note that I disavow the above posting. I'm not sure why, but somehow my name got ascribed to the above post that I DID NOT CREATE!

I tried contacting the TW to see if they could correct the issue, and I apologize for any misunderstanding. For the record, I still prefer the 'new' market at Rillito, but I would never stoop so low as to try making a point in such a manner.

Re: “Best Farmers Market

Sounds like its Mr. White that needs to mature. 70? You cry more like you're 7! According to the news reports, Mr. Shah's contract was unanimously approved by the county supervisors, directly contradicting your belief that he has few friends at the county.

Have you been out to Rillito Park... probably not, since you're too busy wallowing in your hatred for Mr. Shah to open your eyes to reality. What heirloom has at Rillito Park is hardly a crumbling empire.

And as for your dislike at being talked down to, I suggest you take a long hard look at your's and Ms. White's posts and see who is talking down to whom. The two of you appear to be desperately trying to convince yourselves, as much as anybody else, that yours' is the side of goodness and light whereas I see it differently.

In my opinion, you are nothing more than petty, bitter, self-centered nobodies who refuse to see the faults in themselves, but would rather blame others for your own failures. Go to Phoenix and Scottsdale all you wish, but kindly leave ALL of Tucson's markets alone. I'm sure we'll all be the better for it.

Re: “Best Farmers Market

I find it interesting that so many people are quick to bash the management at Heirloom, but won't give them credit for what they have done! They've created THE BEST farmers markets in Tucson. Period!

Some have insinuated that the Heirloom team somehow lost... Take a close look at Rillito, and it's obvious to everyone that THEY'VE WON, and along with them, the entire city of Tucson shares in their victory!

The 'new' market at Rillito has better parking, more vendors, and a greater selection of local 'restaurants on the go.' Thanks to Pima County, we have a first for Tucson... our city's ONLY dedicated farm market pavilion. A trip out to the 'new' market proves that Tucson is thankful for this great opportunity.

Yes, the vendors had a choice, and thankfully a great many chose to remain with the Heirloom team. For those who remained at St. Philips, I wish you good luck... and for those who moved to the 'new' market, I say, 'congratulations.'

As for those who feel it necessary to almost single-handedly blow up this forum, I say, 'grow up!' I don't know the circumstances surrounding your 'firing' from the St. Philips market of old, but if your unbridled vitriol is an example of your dealings with Heirloom, then it's no wonder you were, 'voted off the island' as it were. I, for one, would have gotten rid of you as well
