Edible Austin is suing Fair Market over its canceled Bacon and Beer event in 2016. The publication said that Fair Market didn't get the proper permits for the event in time, forcing Edible to cancel the event (it took place later that summer). According to Austin 360, "the magazine says in the lawsuit that it lost money 'from ticket revenue and corporate advertising.’” The website noted that while Bunkhouse Group (run by Liz Lambert) oversees Fair Market now, the venue was under Pegalo Properties at the time of the cancellation.
