We are on a great city property site in two cities, that we lease.  We use our own rules to govern our market.  The city has no involvement in the operation of the markets.   It is all in how it is organized.

resellers, flea market types, etc, especially if they are friends/related to
a politician. We pay rent, insurance, etc, but are pleased with the freedom.

O.K. I'm curious.... how much involvement do you expect from local
government? (and I'm not just directing this query to Lynn). Farmers are
usually a rather independent bunch (especially up here) and don't typically
invite intervention from "big brother" types.
