Besides the inconvenience of showing up at the market, only to find the stalls that sell the items you came for are either closed or out of stock, the other problem is the negative atmosphere this creates.

Arriving at the market three hours before closing to find empty shelves and people shutting up shop (or simply closed) does not project a positive, professional attitude. Combined with grumpy complaining stallholders and spotty quality in some stands the overall impression makes you wonder whether you've stumbled upon a soviet era market where everyone is grumpy, the shelves are bare, and some stallholders are just going through the motions of running a business because there is no alternative.

I personally like the renovation, but I can understand not everyone likes the bright orderly design. But if the market itself were excellent it wouldn't matter. Remember, people go to farmer's markets on parking lots all the time.
