Residents hope to save Village Market in Rancho Santa Fe


Rancho Santa Fe residents sat outside of the Village Market on Tuesday, May 5, to gather signatures in an effort to save the store, which will move out of the village by the end of 2015 after years of legal battles between the market and landlord.

Wendy Walker, Chrissy Nicholas and Michelle Weinger were gathering signatures that they hoped to present to the Rancho Santa Fe Association board at its May 7 meeting (look for a report on the May 7 meeting on this web site by Tuesday, May 12). The group hopes the RSF Association can find the funds to purchase the market so it can remain a community resource.
