Following is the email content GCA received on Monday, February 29th, 2016, in response to our letter regarding the Ottawa Farmer’s Market:

Ms. McAllister,

Thank you for your e-mail and attached letter concerning the Ottawa Farmers Market.      The many operational issues listed in your letter are currently under discussion with the OFM as part of our renewal of the agreement.    As you might appreciate, many of the terms of the current agreement were negotiated before the site was completed and in full use, and the first your of operation has certainly helped inform our discussions.

Thank you again for voicing your Association’s perspective on this matter.
