Having lived through a rash of daylight shootings up and down my immediate area of Divisadero last summer (no deaths, yet no arrests, natch), I was definitely cynical about the new farmers' market at Divisadero and Grove. Comments like, "Is that Swiss cheese or bullet holes? " and "I guess I'll definitely be getting my iron at this market!" flew between my husband and myself. However, I was also excited by the prospect of walking only two blocks to get my hands on some (hopefully) prime produce.
Clearly, I wasn't the only one whose mind ran along those lines, because denizens of SFist were likewise snarky and hopeful when the news was announced:
"People! I think we have a solid nominee for next year's SFBG "Best Farmer's Market At Which To Get Shot"..."
"Bitchin'! I just moved there. Now I can buy tomatoes to the sound of cat-calls being made at anything with boobs!"
