There are flaws in the selection process. While Ms. Serna is being forced out of the market and her livelihood, RedHill Coffee gets the stall even though according to its website has 7 other locations where its coffee is for sale. Once Tim Horton's begins its roasting here will it be considered a local product and be welcomed to have a stall at the market. As our city becomes more diverse what impact have these rules had on the ethnic stallholders whose produce cannot be grown locally? Should the market also not be looking after the needs of our diverse community's shopping tastes as well as the vendors. Before the appeals process begins MS. Bradford and her Cultural Department staff should be reviewing the selection process and make all necessary changes.
