EaterWire: Red Hook Ball Field Vendors Clear Through 10/21

RED HOOKCity Room reports that the Red Hook Ball Field vendors have been granted a permit to operate through October 21st of this year, finally and definitively securing their operating status for the remainder of the season. But in an even more promising development, it seems that permits for next year are well within reach. Whereas there was a concern that competitive bidding would out-price many vendors from the area, a different scenario will play out: "The department, in a statement, said it is drafting a request for proposals, to be released this fall, for future food vending at Red Hook Park. The request “differs from competitive bidding in that the amount of the bid is not the main criteria for selection,” according to the statement, which added, “Parks will also be looking at a bidder’s prior experience, longstanding community relations, and the variety of cuisine offered, when making a determination.” [NYT]
