Presentations were given by two individuals who would like to take over Market Days at last Tuesday night's city council meeting, prompting an hour long discussion about the event. Amy Ralstin, owner of Kennedy's Korner, and partners David Butler and David Fairly each discussed their visions for the flea market.

Councilmembers unanimously agreed to hear more from each after they have done more research on advertising prices, vendor prices, and what would be needed from the city for this event.

The City of Fairfield is now looking for someone to take control of the market. Things have been strained between Jones and the city, prompting several workshops and meetings to discuss its future. A workshop was held Monday, Jan. 22, with city council in which several vendors attended hoping to develop better marketing strategies from the council.
