Nashville’s beloved farmers market faces some tough rows to hoe | City Limits | Nashville Scene

This article is from the beginning of the year:

“The idea of bringing in a private company to run the operation comes less than a year after a review from Metro’s finance department that was critical of the market’s finances and management. Then-market director Jeff Themm stepped down from the role in June of last year, shortly after the review, and Nancy Whittemore, director of Metro General Services, has been serving as interim director ever since.

Comer says the market board has worked with General Services to address most of the issues brought up in the report, including better enforcement and compliance with civil service rules, and more thorough housekeeping and maintenance. She says they’re still working through the report, and part of that means looking at “all possible options” when it comes to making the market financially sustainable.”

Between an ongoing deficit and privatization talk, Nashville's beloved farmer's market faces some tough rows to hoe | City Limits | Nashville Scene.

I have not heard or seen any updates to this since this article and RFP were published.
