What should Howard County's market on wheels be called?

Howard County shared the top four names and asked the public to pick the best.

Howard County is in the process of naming its new "mobile market," and it's asking the public to help pick a name.

The market on wheels, which is not yet operational, will be designed to connect residents with fresh produce.

After receiving more than 60 entries, Howard County government announced its four finalists for the mobile market's name:

  • The Beet Box
  • The Roving Radish 
  • HoCoFresh 
  • Route Vegetables

Why is the county government spending money on something like this? Howard County doesn't appear to have a lack of grocery stores. If this service was needed it should come from the private sector. No wonder our taxes are so high.

This is an insulting waste of tax dollars. The private sector can, and in fact IS, taking care of demand for vegetables. Government employees must be extremely bored and have absolutely nothing to do to even day dream up such an absurd idea.

I am wondering how this will affect the merchants who already sell their fruit/veggie at the farmer's markets. Looks like the government is trying to muscle in on their small piece of the pie! (at the taxpayers expense no less!)
