Is Atwater Village's Farmers Market in Danger?

Farmer's Market
ACCORDING TO a loyal Newbie reader, Wells Fargo Bank may try to put an end to the Atwater Village Farmers Market.

Posted on the AVNC forum: "The general manager of Wells Fargo, who to date has been incredibly generous in letting the Farmers' Market open in their parking lot on Sundays, and who was a major sponsor of the incredible Tree Lighting this year, is threatening to terminate the FM's licensing agreement."

The Wells Fargo bank location at 3250 Glendale Blvd. may want to open for Sunday hours, we're told, precluding the 4-year-old Farmers Market from operating in its parking lot on Sundays, 10:00am to 2:00pm.

And even though it seems unusual in this ATM/Internet age that anyone really needs access to bank tellers on Sundays, this move by Wells Fargo may call for a letter or two. Address them to:
Judy Fishman
Vice President
Wells Fargo Corporate Properties Group
333 South Grand Ave., Ste. 700
Los Angeles, CA 90071

Ricardo Villarreal
MAC E2063-011
3250 Glendale Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90039
See an effective sample letter from Painkiller.org. Let's do what we can to keep the Farmers Market an integral ingredient in our Atwater Village kitchens.

Please write a letter to the bank to make sure we can nip this thing in the bud. Find a sample letter at the following address: http://www.painkiller.org/ridiculosity/save-the-veggies-in-atwater-village
