I think that happens because the hours are a mish-mash of grocer's hours and farmer's market hours. A grocery store doesn't open at 6, but a farmer's market for actual farmers doesn't open 4 days a week. Farmers have more work to do than selling.

AFAIK there's a market in K/W that has two separate areas - one is the Hamilton-style "all week" market that opens normal grocery store hours, and the other is the "actual farmers" area that's open only one or two days a week. That would be a good model for Hamilton. Say like 7am-2pm Tuesdays and Saturdays for the Actual Farmers Market, and then 830am-6pm Tuesday to Saturday for the Market. The York Blvd area would be good for the "Actual Farmers" area since it has its own entrance and could be closed off from the main Farmer's Market. The York Blvd area also has the advantage that in the warmer months it can expand out into the street, and that's also when farmers have more wares to sell.
