If said authority is unable to agree with the owners of land required for the establishment of a regional market or for an addition to any such market, said authority may bring a petition in the name of the state to the superior court in the judicial district in which the property is located or to a judge of said court if said court is not in session, which petition shall be accompanied by a summons signed by a competent authority to be served as process in civil actions before said court, notifying the owner of the property to be taken and all persons interested in such property to appear before said court or such judge. Said court or such judge shall, thereupon, appoint a state referee to determine the amount of damages to such owner or parties interested in such property. Such referee, after hearing and the determination of such damages, shall report the amount assessed therefor to said court or such judge. If the report is accepted, such acceptance shall have the effect of a judgment in favor of the owner of the property against the petitioners for the amount of the assessment made by such referee and execution may issue therefor. Said court or such judge shall make any order necessary to protect the rights of all parties interested.
