The farmers market has undergone several changes in the past five months to address violations issued by the Los Angeles County Agriculturer Commissioner and Department of Public Health, as well as the fallout from an ongoing embezzlement investigation being carried out by Glendale police. But another change may be in the midst as the Montrose Shopping Park Assn.

After several shake-ups last year at the Montrose Harvest Market, more are coming. The market's craft and collectibles section is getting a new name and a new organizer. And all vendors will have to pay higher fees. The tweaks come after the Sunday farmers market underwent several changes last year to address violations issued by the Los Angeles County Agriculture Commissioner and Department of Public Health, as well as the fallout from an ongoing Glendale police embezzlement investigation involving former Councilman John Drayman.

The city's farmers market has enough money to operate through the end of next year, now that Glendale officials have authorized $20,000 to continue its operation, but a management change for the market may be on the horizon. The market brings a collection of vendors who sell fresh fruit, vegetables and other produce to a stretch of Brand Boulevard from Wilson Avenue to Broadway each Thursday. The decision was made on Tuesday in a 5-0 vote by City Council members in their role as the city's Successor Agency, which handles the obligations of the city's redevelopment agency.

As the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. lurches through a revamp among its leadership and possible changes at its popular farmers market, board members have unanimously agreed to give their executive director a 50% raise. The vote earlier this month increases the annual salary for Dale Dawson, who served on the board for many years before the group hired him as executive director a few years ago, from $12,000 to $18,000. Dawson said he deserved the raise, as his responsibilities have increased due to more park activities and the board separating itself from former City Councilman John Drayman, a one-time board member who often helped out when the association needed his aid. He often helped run the Sunday Montrose Harvest Market.

Organizers of the farmers market in Montrose - already in hot water regarding sponsorship rules - have been told by public health officials to ratchet up efforts to keep animals out.

Roughly 500 seniors from throughout the San Fernando Valley converged Thursday on the farmers market on Brand Boulevard armed with state-issued vouchers to buy fresh produce, creating near gridlock on the sidewalk as vendors worked feverishly to fill orders. The seniors were bused in from throughout the valley as part of an effort to get them to use their vouchers before they expire Nov. 30, as the San Fernando Valley Interfaith Coalition tries to double its state allotment to 2,400 vouchers for the next yearly cycle, which starts in December.

I had the privilege and honor of serving the farmers as the manager of the Glendale Certified Farmers Market for the past 13 years. Twenty-one years ago, the city of Glendale hired Gretchen Stirling to start one of the very first farmers markets in the Southland, right in plain view on Brand Boulevard. One of the unique aspects of the Glendale Farmers Market was that the city's intent was not to make money, per se, but rather to bring people into the downtown so they'd shop at the restaurants and other stores as well.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Marcus agreed on Monday to delay former Councilman John Drayman's criminal trial until April, marking yet another delay in court proceedings since Drayman was indicted in May 2012. Drayman, who allegedly embezzled at least $304,000 from a weekly farmers market he once helped run in Montrose, had tried to plead guilty in September in exchange for 300 hours of community service and a life-time ban from public service. However, Marcus rejected the plea deal because it did not include jail time.
