I do agree that an overall goal of focusing on local farmers, artisans, etc., is important, but the idea of culling the stall owners by using the market renovation as an excuse and developing a set of criteria that is intended to accomplish this leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Let's face it: this will affect minorities most of all. I feel really bad for the extended Asian families that will likely be affected by these new rules.

Regardless of our overall goals for the market and what it ought to offer, let's not forget that livelihoods will be damaged or destroyed by these changes and families will suffer as a result.
