When I was a kid the Farmers Market was Awesome. We lived on Parkdale for a time and my dad would drive downtown and park in the upper levels of the Market. We would walk down and he would do all the shopping for the fresh veggies etc., for the week. It was one stop shopping. Easy for the vendors. Larger area. More vendors. More customers. Nothing fancy.

A smart competitor might build a multistory parking facility with the ground floor used for a market on the weekends and out compete the new market. But I bet the City would never allow it.

When I was first married, my wife raved about the market(we actually had two - one downtown and one at the Centre Mall - both great) (she was from out of town and ours was way better than the St. Lawrence Market.) But we improved it and now I never go there.
