A truck truce for Civic Center Eats

When this week's edition of Civic Center Eats kicks off in a couple of hours, it should be one big, happy family of vendors. That's because Colorado Fresh Markets, which runs three of the town's biggest markets and has its vendors sign a non-compete agreement that technically prohibits them from participating in farmers' markets within five miles of its venues, has called a truck truce.

"On July 12," writes Chris Burke, co-owner of Colorado Fresh Markets, "we made an exception for those vendors that wished to attend the Civic Center market in support of the park and the vendors and in the spirit of resolving everything in an positive manner, which was our goal all along."

And so the food fight is over -- for now. Which makes for a very satisfying ending for fans of the Biscuit Bus and other vendors who'd like to sell their wares at both Cherry Creek and Civic Center Park.
