Please explain why Kirkland Wednesday Market was moved | LETTER
July 21, 2011 · Updated 3:02 PM
However, the letter by Bonnie Fletcher may have tried to change the issue. Essentially, Ms. Fletcher stated that the weather conditions affecting the growing season for produce, and the wind and rain last season at Marina Park, caused the transfer of the market to Park Lane.
I find it specious that the decision to move to Park Lane was based on weather last year, which was normal if not nice, by anticipating that it would be worse this year.
Probably most dissatisfied patrons would like an explanation by the Kirkland City administration of the actual reason for the move given that the weather is not a logical answer. A final observation: I wonder why the “Kirkland Uncorked” event was not also moved for weather reasons?
