The Farm Cart

Now the new norm, produce shoppers keep a distance from one another while waiting to shop at The Farm Cart on Carpinteria Avenue.

Mayor Nomura handed out gift certificates that he purchased from local restaurants to those in attendance at the March 23 City Council meeting. “In a recent study, it was found that every dollar spent locally cycles through five to seven times before leaving the area, and it is important we do our best to support these businesses that are the hardest hit,” said Nomura. “I am asking each of you to accept these gift certificates with the understanding this is a pay it forward pledge. As we get through the worst of the virus invasion, it will be our economy that will be the last to recover, which is why we need to keep our city’s economy as strong as possible.” Nomura bought over 20 gift certificates and plans on handing the rest out to local “stars” that are going above and beyond to help the community through hard times.
