2007_06_redhookball.JPGGood news! Serious Eats reports that the vendors at the Red Hook ballfields will be allowed to sell their delicious food through the season, which ends October 28. (Eater explains that the Parks Department approved a waiver.) Earlier, there were concerns that the vendors would be denied permits by the Parks Department, which brought out fans ranging from soccer players to chefs. The vendors will start have to work out a formal deal with the Parks Department to operate, but here's hoping this means the vendors will be around next season.

And this comes just in time for the NY Times' feature about the vendors in tomorrow's Metro section - it happens to be online today!
