Audit of Alemany Farmers' Market called for 

Supervisors Sophie Maxwell requested an audit Tuesday of The City’s operation of the Alemany Farmers’ Market.

The audit request, to be conducted by the board’s budget analyst Harvey Rose, comes after controversy erupted last year about changes to how The City determined which stall operators could operate at the market, sparking criticism that the process was confusing and resulted in the ouster of longtime stall operators.

“The market has played an important part in the city’s history for almost 70 years now and represents the oldest farmers market in California,” Maxwell said. “Of the 19 certified farmers’ markets in San Francisco Alemany is the only one in which the city acts as the market operations and as such we have a special responsibility to ensure the market is managed in a professional fashion and in a way that supports the overall goals of the market, delivering a quality product and experience for customers and embracing local and regional producers.”
