Farmers' market plan for Golden Gate Park

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi’s proposal to cut vending fees for farmers' market stallholders on Recreation and Park land will come before the Budget and Finance Committee on Wednesday.

The plan would change the daily fee of $50 per vendor to a six-monthly fee of $475. That fee would provide each vendor an unlimited number of stalls for markets held once a week.

The Recreation and Park Department’s property manager reported that since the board initially passed its $50 fee policy in February 2007, there has not been any record of farmers' markets taking place on Rec and Park land.

That could change — a market could sprout along a closed portion of Waller Street in Golden Gate Park, according to documents sent to the Budget and Finance Committee by The City's budget analyst.
