If there is in fact sufficient demand for the stuff Julia sells, the solution is simple...open up a store or kiosk in the square near the market, or even renting an empty storefront in the area. There are many alternatives for an independent entrepreneur like Julia.

When you have limited space available, and demand for that space exceeds supply, it's inevitable that someone's going to walk away disappointed. While I think the City does itself a disservice by being so hush-hush about the selection process, it is a decision that had to be made.

Then again, do we expect the city to make every decision public? Should we really be privy to, let's say, all of the people who applied to work in the City Hall cafeteria? Where do we draw the line between letting the staff we pay do their jobs, and demanding information to hold them publically accountable?
