Rec and Park markets stirring debate from street artists 

A committee that represents local street artists such as the vendors at The Embarcadero will discuss Wednesday their opposition to Rec and Park creating more public markets on open spaces like Justin Herman Plaza.

Rec and Park has been asking managers to utilize Justin Herman Plaza, the Civic Center Plaza and the Candlestick Stadium parking lot for weekly public markets; however, after the street vendors found out about it, they started crying foul at the idea of competition.

On Wednesday at their regular meeting at 2 p.m. at 25 Van Ness Ave., they’ll probably vote to ask the Arts Commission to take a stance on Rec and Park’s request for proposals.
