Body
Staff in the Chief Administrative Office and Risk Management Division developed an idea to provide a farmers' market on County property to encourage wellness among County employees.  Pursuant to title 5 of the County ordinance code, Procurement and Contracts issued a request for proposals.  One qualifed response was received.  The recommended vendor has been initiating farmers' markets for 22 years and has five markets in the County in addition to the proposed market.   
 
The facility use agreement will specify the dates and hours of the market, currently proposed to be Fridays, June 14 through August 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and the conditions on the use of the County property.  There is no cost to the County and there is no proposed fee to be paid by EDCCFA.
