Another case of city beaurocracy failing to get it right, despite the fact that it tries.

Yes local and organic produce are good. Yes the market should appeal to a braoder demographic including those with more income

No that should not be used as a blanket qualifier. No that does not eliminate the need to accomodate certain food staples that are not available locally year round.

They must also recognize that there is no full service grocery store downtown, and for a lot of loyal market customers, the market is it. It's where we buy our food.

I've seen more upscale markets in other cities, and they fail at providing the utilitarian value that ours does. The Ottawa farmer's market is terrible - they sell more non-food there than food. I hate to think that's where our market is headed.
