I hardly see how selling vegetables makes one "a glorified variety store". Especially in an area where so few variety stores have a single vegetable. The OFT gets most produce from any sizable operation in Ontario, because agriculture is so tightly controlled in this country, and most have no choice. I'd RATHER have people selling produce straight from local organic farms, but it isn't like they're selling any worse a quality of food than the freshest veggies at The Barn.

Go talk to some market vendors, whichever ones you respect, about the city's plans. Most of 'em feel pretty left-out and screwed. I heard quite an earful last Saturday. Did ya know they're raising the rents, too?
