It was too bad you misquoted Jeff Brechbuhl, proprietor of the People Garden (City Desk, “Produce Standoff,” 3/7), on the new farmers’ market in Mount Pleasant. Brechbuhl has supported the farmers’ market from the beginning and knows that we’ve worked closely with business and community groups in Mount Pleasant, including Main Street, for more than a year.

You also neglected to report what I told your reporter: I look forward to working with the Columbia Heights community market and Community Harvest, a local nonprofit, to promote all the D.C. markets selling local food.

I guess the facts didn’t fit your “divided in Mount Pleasant” thesis.
