I went to the Payson Farmers Market this past Saturday, July 2. I was enjoying the morning with my mother when I was approached by a market official.
He asked me what I was doing there and I told him I was shopping. A few minutes later I was approached by another person and asked the same question. I gave the same response. She then accused me of trying to steal her vendors. I had no idea what she was talking about. My mother and I purchased items from several vendors just like we do every Saturday.
At one point she went so far as to grab my arm, which really upset me. So after a few minutes of being harassed, my mother and I decided to leave. We will not be returning to the market again. Her behavior was horrible — especially to treat local Payson people the way she did.
