The Weston Village BIA has posted an update on the Gaeta Farms expulsion. It isn’t particularly revealing of their side of the story, but it does say they are working hard to ensure a “successful market upon our return to John Street for the 2020 season.”
While trying to maintain the integrity and professionalism of the market, as well as the confidentiality of the Gaeta family, there have been several issues which have not been resolved, and in fact have escalated in recent weeks. We feel it is in the best interest of the Market as a whole, the Weston community and the BIA to discontinue our relationship.
We ask for your patience and trust during this difficult time. We assure you we are working very hard to ensure we have a professional, successful market upon our return to John Street for the 2020 season.
I tried earlier this week to reach Frances Nunziata and the BIA for comment, but I haven’t yet heard back.
You think your job is tough? Try dressing like Marie Antoinette and standing on the pavement when it’s 42°. It has to be brutal.
Calling for his head
And her comeuppance
My favourite performance was by Kate Mior, who returned this time as Madame Guillotine. Her performance was brilliant. She ‘executed’, with audience cheers and encouragement, an innocent man drawn from the crowd, before her own death by baguette. It was funny—and a slicing commentary on the difference, if any, between audience and mob.
The BIA, the performers, and volunteers did a great job in really tough conditions this year. Hats–or heads!–off to them!
