Since our beloved Manager, Stephanie Anderegg Maloy, has retired and moved to greener pastures – Parks and Recreation are seeking a new Market Manager.
Dear City Market Vendors
It was my plan to communicate with you at the Vendors Meeting on February 20th. But I now realize that will be too hard to wait.
I would like to be the first person to tell you that I have turned in my resignation to the City of Charlottesville. I will no longer be the Market Master for the City of Charlottesville. As of February 22, I will be working for The Rock Barn. I am very excited about this new opportunity. It has been 12 ½ years and I feel it is time for me to move on to a new adventure.
I do plan to be at the Vendor Meeting to say bye, but it will not truly be goodbye. I will visit the market as much as I can.
I hope that 2016 is an amazing market season for you all.
I am sorry if you received this twice. Some did not receive it.
City Market Master
