"The limited hours, lack of places to sit and interior glass wall cutting the Market off from the street" are not the problem. lack of vision and no management are the real problems. the market will never turn around until the city is taken out of the equation.

everyone wants the market to be something different because the market isnt anything anyone can get behind as it stands, including the vendors. it can't be all things to all people. it cant be a "real" farmers market, as if that ever existed, and be open grocery store hours at the same time. it cant be a busy vibrant retail place and a casual place to have lunch with a family at the same time. it cant be a place that is easy to get to by bike, transit, or on foot and be a place you can park in a surrounding surface parking lot at the same time.

the market needs vision. the market needs real goals. the market needs to decide what it is going to be really good at and get down to doing it. the market needs management.
