Farmers or not, there's no excuse for shrinking the market. Claiming that they're doing this to "support farmers" is absolute hogwash. It would be like shutting down a floor of the Library because too many of the books aren't by local authors.

Yes, the market needs more farmers. But many small family farms wouldn't have the labourers to staff a booth if they were given one for free. Closing spaces permanently will only force more people back to supermarkets where there are NO options for local food. Why isn't anyone shutting them down?
