At their May 5th meeting, the City Council gave Market Manager for West Coast Farmers Market Association, Jerry Lami, direction to start a weekend market in Brisbane.  Jerry chose Sunday morning as the day for the market, so there would be a wider gap in days between Thursday’s market and the new weekend market.  The location for the Sunday market will be the same as Thursday’s market, in the Community Park (11 Old County Rd., Brisbane), with farmers parking their trucks in City Hall’s parking lot to ensure plenty of parking on San Francisco Ave. for visitors to the Park and those renting any of the picnic tables.  Speaking of farmers, check out the list of vendors who will be at this Sunday's market:

  • Cipponeri Farms
  • Sunrise Farms
  • EGB Farms
  • Cobblestone Bakery
  • Lee Farms
  • Pete Davis Honey
  • Medina Berries 
  • Bountiful Basket Vinegars

In addition, Brisbane resident Jennifer Bousquet will be manning a table letting all the families know about Hulafrog - an online daily event calendar of fun things to do with your kids in our local area.  She'll have froggy coloring sheets and crayons, free Hulafrog trading cards, lollipops, and some more information about the resource.

So, come and check out the new weekend market starting on Sunday, June 8th!  Also, Like West Coast Farmers Market Association on Facebook and get updates about what will be taking place at the farmers' market on Sundays!  Thanks and happy market shopping!

Nancy Carpenter Retires

Printer-friendly version

(Excerpt from the May 2014 Citynews)

Since 1997, Nancy Carpenter has been the face of the Brisbane Parks and Recreation Department.  As of May 23, Nancy will have officially ended her 17 year career with the city.  Nancy began as a receptionist and a floater in 1997, filling in for staff members if they went on vacation or were absent.  Eventually, she became full time with the Recreation Department in 1999, working in the old Parks and Recreation Office at the Brisbane Elementary School.  She eventually moved over to City Hall to work more closely with Jim Skeels, the Parks and Recreation Director at that time. Jim recalls his time with Nancy with great fondness and admiration. “From day one I realized that Nancy was the hub of the Recreation Department.  Almost everything ran through her.  She is a dedicated professional, believes in what she does, willing to look at new & improved ways to provide services, puts in the quality time necessary to provide excellent results, and does all this in her amenable style working with other staff and, of course, the public.”

Nancy played a huge role in the department’s growth and development of classes and programs and also with the online registration system.  Russ Carmick, who was here when Nancy began in the Parks and Recreation Office, says he will miss her sense of humor and her strong work ethic.  Steve Beaty has also worked with Nancy a number of years.  He says of Nancy’s retirement that the “entire Recreation Department will greatly miss Nancy.  She has always been the glue that held all our different programs and operations together.  Nancy has always gone above and beyond to help everyone, from brides planning weddings at Mission Blue, to parents signing up their children for their first pre-school experience, and most of all to helping and supporting the staff of the Brisbane Recreation Department.”  When asked what she would miss most, Nancy replied she would miss her interaction with the community.  That is our Nancy. Loyal and true blue to the community she served so well for so long.  Our many thanks to you Nancy!  Have a great Retirement!

Massage Ordinance

Printer-friendly version

The City Council is considering an Ordinance that would regulate massage professionals and massage businesses in the City.  Specifically, it would mandate that persons offering massage in the City be State-certified and that massage businesses employ exclusively State-certified massage professionals to perform massages, that massage businesses and massage professionals apply for and obtain a revocable certificate of registration with the City, and that massage establishments abide by certain operating and sanitation standards. 

This Ordinance was first introduced at the May 19th Council Meeting and the Council will consider adoption of the Ordinance at its June 19th meeting.

The proposed Ordinance will not affect properly licensed physicians, chiropractors, nurses, barbers, beauticians and certain other individuals and businesses while they are engaged in practices within the scope of their licenses.

If you have questions regarding this proposed Ordinance, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at (415) 508-2113.

Weekend Farmers' Market

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE 5/20 - Help spread the word!

UPDATE 5/16 - Council has given approval for a weekend market to start, and the market manager has chosen to have the weekend market take place on Sundays, from 9am - 1pm, with the kickoff being on June 8th.  A location in downtown Brisbane is still being determined.  Stay tuned...

In the April CityNews publication that is arriving in your mailboxes, along with a Wednesday e-mail blast about the market, there was mention about West Coast Farmers Market Association starting a Saturday farmers' market beginning on May 10th on the first block of Park Lane (see above image).  That market will be held off until a determination is made at the May 5th City Council meeting, which, if direction to move forward with a Saturday market is given, the earliest the market would start would be May 24th due to permits needing to be pulled by the Health Department.  We apologize for any confusion.  If you have thoughts about a Saturday morning market starting in Brisbane, please leave a comment below or come to the Council meeting and let the Council and market manager hear your thoughts.  Thank you!
