Sadly, Jepson actually complained about the market opening up to the street and having extra outside fruit and vegetable stands during the summer.

His objections?

  1. That having a lane closed on York for the farmers' trucks made it "confusing" for drivers. They would be so discombobulated by seeing a closed lane that they would not know what was going on and be unwilling to visit the market.

  2. That shoppers would buy fruit and vegetables outside instead of going into the market to buy meat from his butcher's stand (?!).

So, here you have a stallholder actively arguing against the things shoppers actually want and trying to shut down expanded seasonal selection of produce, because he is worried that if you buy produce outside, you won't buy meat inside (and closing a lane is so frightening that drivers will high-tail it out of town rather than driving past the food trucks!).
