Great market, but I've always wondered why it's hemmed into the sidewalk, making it really cramped. It should take up the whole street. Not like the occasional car passing through or free parking are more important than all the people using the market.

Ditto! Carroll Street should be closed down for the day. Who could help make that happen? Lander?
