I'm sure Marie used to buy up excess event items from the global market but this doesn't seem to happen any more.
Now the market is flooded with coconut milk presumably from players not doing the event. It makes the game very boring when there's nothing useful to buy.
Please Zynga could Marie buy up at least some of the first round items in each event or could players have a chance to opt out so they don't get the event items.
