FarmVille Flea Market Removed: Say goodbye to Claire (for now)
Posted on June 7, 2012 2:05 pm by FarmVille Freak FarmGoddess
Some disappointing news for FarmVille farmers especially those FarmVille Freaks that never got the opportunity to be visited by Claire- FarmVille has decided to remove the Flea Market feature!
The Flea Market was on an extremely slow roll out to players and it seems as though only a small group of players actually had it probably due to Zynga testing it for bugs and feedback. There was a lot of positive feedback from players that had been visited by Claire and made Flea Market trades. However, there were still kinks involved that Zynga would like to resolve before they consider this feature to be a permanent part of FarmVille. Removing the Flea Market from the game kinda seems like a temporary decision on Zynga’s part, but we’ll have to wait and see! I’m still mad at Claire for never visiting my farm. What about you, how do you feel about the removal of the Flea Market feature from FarmVille?

Here’s the announcement from official FarmVille sources, FarmVille Community Manager Grimwell, below:
After listening carefully to everyone’s feedback, we’ve turned off the Flea Market feature, so you’ll no longer find Claire visiting your farms. As you know, we’ve brought this feature out very slowly and we have actively watched how Farmers who have had access to Claire responded, and how the feature worked out in comparison with our expectations.
We’re certainly very happy to see that a great number of Farmers are interested in trading! The Flea Market has taught us that we have a good number of things to resolve before we can consider a feature with trading a permanent part of FarmVille. Due to that realization, the Flea Market has been removed from the game.
Thank you for your interest, participation, and feedback on this feature.
