We love farmers’ markets. We do. We wrote a whole ode to them, which we think it worth a read if you haven’t already. But, there’s also a lot of them.
We are working on some pretty major site changes – including creating the actual wizard for which this site is named – but that involves major architectural work that cannot be rushed. In the meantime, as we add more and more shows, farmers’ markets, and vending opportunities, the calendar is getting a little unwieldy. The weekend days are definitely past the threshold into overloaded and are causing folks to need to scroll an unreasonable amount.
The site upgrades will solve this pain point more effectively, but for now, a temporary measure is that all farmers’ markets will have a toggle switch where you need to click in order to see them. That is to say that when you first load the calendar – the farmers’ markets will not appear. If you wish to see them, you will need to check the checkbox in the filters on the left hand side of the screen, as shown in the screenshot below.
We put a lot of thought into this – we don’t want to hide farmers’ markets. However, in order to ensure that everyone is able to find things easily, this is a stop gap until the improvements to come. We’re super excited for what we have planned and we can’t wait to share it with you in the weeks to come!
