I've been talking to various people about how new vendors at
Farmers' Market should be added, when space is available. It's a topic that was going to be discussed last night at a city meeting, but was put off until June 21.
City staff, and elected officials, largely want to hand off
the responsibility of day-to-day management of the market to the farmers
themselves, who - for their part - want that additional responsibility.
UPDATED 2 pm with info from Daniel Price.
Without some revisions, farmers and other vendors hoping to
participate in the Portland Farmers' Market on
Wednesdays in Monument Square
and Saturdays in Deering
are unlikely to find the already murky admission process any clearer under a
new plan for market management set to be discussed by city officials on
Thursday, May 17, at 6 pm in the City Hall's Council Chambers.
