Marsha, not quite the ways it's done. You have to submit an application. If the market wants you and you're a food vendor then they ask for samples. If you're good then they either recommend you to other market managers or they are the manager for more then one market.

Thanks for remembering me Brian. Neil may do all the cooking but I'm the one that has to keep up with the paperwork. And with Neil that ain't easy.

We checked out Atwater Village yesterday and the market is about 3 x's the size of Watts. I expect to do a lot better there. The only thing is they asked us not to do chicken since we'll be directly across from the guy whose whole menu consist of something with chicken.

We also ran into one of the fruit vendors from Watts and he told us since he's been there he's sold out every weekend and he's ordering a whole brisket this coming Sunday.

Thank you for the information! We have been thinking of approaching a couple of the local farmer's markets around here. Our only problem is that we have vending events at festivals and such on most of the weekends in the summer.

Same here MrsMista! My hubby would never make it if he didn't have me to do all of the organizing, paperwork, applications, etc. Okay, maybe he would, but he would not be organized, that's for certain. ;)

I am sure that Watts is a lot different today compared to when I was there. I was assigned to work there in the early 70's (not sure if you were born yet ). It was not too long after the little incident in 64. The guy I had to replace was murdered on the job in broad daylight. I was reminded that I was NOT welcome in that community by most, not all, people. But that was almost 40 years ago. Different people have different memories of things. P.S. I am almost 6'6" and had the chit scared outta me several times down there!
If you (or Mrs) are serious about growing your business, shoot me a PM. We may be able too work something out!

People still have old fears from old events that they were never a part of but only heard about and I'm pretty sure a lot not true. I have a cousin that lives not 5 minutes away and she won't even let her daughters come up there to hang out with us. Such is life. Besides if you don't have a deadly weapon, I don't scare easy.
