'Last year, former Willow Glen Farmers' Market directors Mel Defe and SuEllen Sterling announced their departure after more than 18 years. The news generated considerable speculation about the market's future and who would operate it.
A new director has not yet been announced, and Willow Glen Business Association executive director Valerie Merklin told The Resident that the market will start a bit later than usual this year
"We are still ironing out details on the farmers' market," Merklin wrote in an email. "Because of the transition, the only news is that it will not be able to start the first weekend in May as it has in the past, it will likely be June."'
