John the owner of SONO has forwarded us his cell. I am letting Uncle handle the call. I still won't patronize them, but I am curious as to what the discussion will be. The nature of the market has now been tarnished in my eyes. Not so much because we didn't get to purchase what we wanted but because the rules seem to be bent by this vendors staff on more than one occasion. I will miss their muffins though!
I spent a whole $10.50 on zucchini, corn and broccoli.
The rest was from my market share. Lovely Swiss chard, fairytale eggplant and tomatoes
I also will no longer be doing business with SONO Bakery. On more than one occasion I have witnessed them bagging up product requested by the same person before "the bell" and then taking the cash after the bell. In the past when I witnessed it happen they just said what we wanted wasn't put on truck. This time we pushed the topic more, and the semantics used was that they hadn't sold the product yet. No apology, actually we were treated with indifference and rudeness. It was suggested that the items had been preordered (the entire time the person who had bypassed the rules was laughing). My reply to that was a preorder should come bagged for the customer, not taken from the trays for the market. Shrug was the reply. As you all know from my posts, I have spent quite a bit at their booth over the years. No more. I speak with my dollars (and the emails I sent to city seed and the bakery). I truly do not expect a reply, but know I was clear and to the point.
