  1. Why would you bring someone in for a day? There is a beautiful new heimish farmers market in Howell for the community. It carries organic and all types of produce. He pays lots of rent and is permanant.He also offers free delivery. Why would you take away his parnossa? Why is this a good thing,when you take away the livlihood of residents and tax payers by bringing in one dayers? This also goes for clothing and shoes and all those that come in to make a buck off of lakewood at the expense of the permanent stores.

  2. i think it’s a good thing to bring a farmer’s market downtown- it helps all the downtown businesses to have events like this. I’d rather support businesses in Lakewood than Howell!

  3. Its very good for all the people who have farmer checks from WIC, that checks could not be used at a local grocery even when they accept the reg. WIC checks

  4. There are a number of struggling fruit stores on clifton that we should support and patronize.
    The fruit they sell are largely NJ grown so you’re supporting your town and state.

  5. you have to focus on the peoples interest not the store owners interest if these store want they could also set up a booth its available for every one

  6. wine on nine is in howell,do you shop there? Howell where the farmers market owned by a yid is is 2 seconds from shoprite.there are alot of frum business’es there and the owners live in lakewood. Supporting them helps lakewood as they shop there and pay tax’s there and send to schools there. The quality farmers market,Tov Electronics, wine on the nine, health food stores, shoe store, flamms, national home furniture and more are all owned by frum.By coming to *howell* is supporting Lakewood. Its on the way to walmart,so its really not out of anyones way.
    Free enterprise is great, and if there were legitimate stores that are here to stay and support the community and pay tax’s then its fine. When they are transients and stay a day then its bad.

  7. you are wrong. Think before you write. When a store owner invests money and blood sweat and tears in opening a business he hopes that people will shop by him. Clothing stores build up a business and pay rent and taxs and advertising. then someone comes in for one day,does not pay tax’s.pays minimal rent,does not contribute any money to lakewood and then leaves. What he accomlished was to take away business from the legitimate store owner,made paying his rent harder,made his business suffer and made others business’s suffer because he can not spend money here. There is nothing wrong with 2 or 3 or 5 or 10 clothing stores here,as we say its a free county and competition is great. However the stores are here,pay rent,tax’s and live here. Big difference. If you would think you would see how these daytimers are hurting lakewood not helping.

  8. Just to clarify my point of view: I’m not Jewish, I shop in Brick, Toms River etc and I have no reason to go downtown. I saw the article about a farmer’s market and thought “wow, maybe I’ll check it out!”
    This is my reasoning for saying it could be good for downtown. I may actually end up checking out other stores/businesses. A farmer’s market may bring new faces into downtown Lakewood, like mine.
