Ok, she is great at advertising and coming up with interesting events for the market but she is driving some of us nuts. Every market she spends the whole day helping her friend . We had an issue when a man had a seizure right at my stand and she never came to help us with him or his wife. She never called 911 or took the people's name, she hid.
For the last three weeks she has let new people take my assigned spot. My regular customers have been looking for me all over the market. This week I was squeezed in between a new vendor and a new concession stand . I paid a lot of money for my assigned space and she offered no explanation. I have been at the market since it began two years ago. I pick some of my produce fresh the morning of the market and arrive 15 minutes before the market begins. The rules are , if you do not plan on coming to the market you must call the night before. I have always obeyed this rule. The other rule is you must be at the market before 9 am . I am always there by 8:45.
It seems there are three of us she has decided not to like so she is making thing hard for us. I am compitition for her friend so she is trying to get rid of me? I am afraid I just sent an email to her about it and copied the other vendors. What should I do?
