The 2024 agreement between the Plymouth Park Department and the Farmers’ Market was approved by the park board Monday evening.
City Attorney Jeff Houin told the board there were some minor adjustments to the agreement. He cleaned up the language designating the location in River Park Square that the Farmers Market will have control of on Saturday mornings. The new language gives the Farmers Market control of the park property in the area east of Water Street to the horseshoe parking area and everything in between. Houin told park board members that the concession stand, performance area, grassy area, and or the new pavilion are not under the Farmers’ Market control in this new agreement.
The contract calls for the Plymouth Farmers Market to pay the city ten percent of the booth rental income during the season. The market will have liability insurance and will provide the city with a certificate of insurance showing the city as an additional insured.
The Plymouth Farmers Market agreement is specifically for May through October and Plymouth Park Board members unanimously approved the agreement.
