From my perspective, this is great news. I've been around long enough to remember the market when it was in the lower level of the parking garage behind Eaton's and in the stalls on Market Street. I don't wish any harm to the current vendors, but I can get the same product from the Ontario Food Terminal at my grocery store. The majority of food sold at the market is from the OFT. Giving local farmers/growers a place to sell locally grown food is what I think most of us want to see. I applaud Councillor Pasuta for his motion. As a working farmer, he's much closer to this than almost all of the rest of us.

This is going to get really ugly as all of the existing stall holders start to fight over fewer spaces and against criteria that puts farmers first.
