Thanks for explaining Mr. Lundt, but I don't think the 3-4 months out of the year makes that greatRead Morea difference. Look at the name on most of the empty shops. I wonder if part of the problem lies with that particular management company.

Penny---this business owners--many of them disagree. The margins are not fat already. Choking outRead Moreth e prime summer months is not helping. While A few businesses certainly were poorly managed--others have simply relocated. As you know the vacancy rate for businesses down there is abysmal. As stated I am fine with a real farmers market: Fresh fruits and vegetables--a few baked goods. The problem is when the people in tents compete with store fronts, the stores lose out. Its a matter of cost/overhead. So we a have a few months where perhaps business improves for a few transient people but we end up with a current (my guess) 50% vacant downtown. Finally I am not blaming the entire downtown issue on the farmers market. The issue is far more complex. However it is a contributing factor to deserves examination.
