The big thing that ruined the market for me was the balkanized floor-plan post-renovation. Pre-reno and in the temporary space, there was a coherent food-court. Now? There is no single agglomeration of all the ready-to-eat take-out places.

But either way, the City Centre and the Jackson Square parking lots are both available, and there's metre parking on Park, MacNab, and Vine. If that's not enough parking for the Market, there will never be enough parking.

The big problem with Park, Macnab, and Vine is the "free parking on weekends" thing that functionally means "no parking on weekends unless you got here at 8am".

If I ruled the world? Change up the floor-plan - make the street-facing fishbowl area a true farmer's market - limited hours, open air, and fresh local produce.

Then make the market interior keep proper business hours and relocate stalls until there are coherent sections including a true food-court.
