NOT my review !!

How was a review posted in my name that I did not write ?

I live near the reviewed location but know I never wrote the review because I had never been there,- a farmers' market held at time when I cannot go there;

suspect said F market staff wrote it?

What has usually happened in cases like this is that someone has left their computer logged on to TA and someone else in the family has used it. Could this have happened to you? Or have you used a public computer and maybe left it logged on?

This business wouldn't have access to your account to post a review. Like Annabelle said, most likely you left your computer signed on (or used a public computer and didn't sign off) and another person used it to write the review.

Ask your family members. You can have the review removed by going to:

www.tripadvisor.com/UserReviewSupport

If know for a fact that no one in your household used your computer, I'd recommend you change your password:

I don't see any reviews of farmers markets under your name, bess32355. Has it been removed already?

According to TA, farmers markets aren't supposed to be listed:

"The following business types can be listed as resources, but not attractions:

•Temporary or short-term things to do (e.g., farmer's markets, flea markets)"

Hi Bess;

To log on to TA, you must enter your email address (not your user name) and the password that you selected. How would / could anyone else know what those are ?

I too suspect that you failed to log off from a shared computer.

Best Regards

Farmers markets can be listed if they operate year-round, which is a lot easier to do in California than in Canada. But my destination has at least 2 year-round farmers markets on TA.

The one in Encinitas, Calif is not year round - at least the one I found on google. Assuming that is the one that bess32355 did or did not review?

Seems to be open year-round, unless I missed something?

I looked before posting, and yes, there was a review of a farmers market. She must have requested removal.

I assumed the farmer's market was in Encinitas, where the OP lives!

sdfarmbureau.org/BuyLocal/Farmers-Markets.php (scroll down to the grey boxes - looks like it's April to October)

But it's on TA... tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g32355-d31…

We may never know which one bess was asking about LOL ;-)
