Agreement Reached in Vendor Dispute at Flint Farmers Market

Townsquare Media

An agreement has been reached between a vendor who was facing eviction proceedings at the Flint Farmers Market, and the market’s owner, Uptown Reinvestment Corp.

According to MLive, an attorney for the vendor, Alec Gibbs, said Coykendall Produce will end its lease two months early and vacate its position at the market in early February.

Coykendall Produce had received a letter terminating the lease from Uptown in November after allegedly misusing a food incentive program which Uptown said violated the lease agreement. However, Coykendall and its owner Sandy Coykendall, claimed the eviction attempt was in retaliation because it does not plan to go to the market’s new location in downtown Flint and instead will go to a new market in Davison.

A trial had been scheduled for January 28th. Details of the complete agreement were not made public
