ハワイカイの青空市場が終了

ローカルニュース - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 08:00
 オアフ島ハワイカイ地区のココヘッド小学校で毎週土曜日に開催されていたファーマーズマーケットが終了したことが明らかになった。 ハワイカイのファーマーズマーケットは、地元産の新鮮な野菜やフルーツのほか、様々なローカル食品が手に入るスポットとして過去4年間にわたって地元の人々に大人気だったものの、人気が高まるにつれてファーマーズマーケット開催地周辺での交通渋滞等が問題化し、今回、マーケットの終了が決定した。 関係者は、ハワイカイのファーマーズマーケットに出店していたベンダーは、オアフ島内の別の場所で開催されているファーマーズマーケットに異動して営業を続けるとしているものの、ベンダーのひとりは「毎週ファーマーズマーケットで交流していた顧客と会えなくなるのは、とても悲しいです」とコメントしたほか、マーケットの利用者も「コミュニティーの一員であったマーケット関係者と会えなくなるのは残念です」と語り、ファーマーズマーケットの終了を惜しんだ。
