Our local market is on a downhill slide. Until recently it was a friendly place for customers and vendors. Then somebody decided we need a committee, by-laws, traffic cops, etc. They even painted spots on the pavement to control space used. A tongue lashing to anyone that steps on that spot! These few people are on a power trip and we are loosing customers and vendors. Sad to see your vendor friends selling from a gas station lot. We won't be back this year. Maybe next year will be better.

In all things know which way the wind is blowing.
Farmers Markets are doing well here. There is one in the parking lot of the county court house on Saturdays, and another at the county health office on Wednesdays. Someone, I an mot sure who, has even put up permanent stalls for shade at the one at health office. So far as I know, both are free to sellers. We are also seeing quite a bit of sales from local farm supply parking lots, grocery store parking lots, etc. None of which charge the vendor.

Our local farmers market is a good example of committee working well for it. At the start of the year, they started a token system that allows buyers to use credit/debit cards. Then, just last week, they added an evening market on Tuesdays for the folks who don't want to or can't be there on Saturday morning.
