Here's the semi-definitive scoop on the hours of the Wednesday Downtown Farmers Market (5th St btwn Grand & Flower). The official hours are as posted on the street banners: 11:30-3. However, the mkt encouraged vendors to arrive & start early for the first 2 wks. Thus, last week, many vendors were open shortly after 9 am.
This week, at 10, most -- but not all -- non-food vendors were open for biz, but no hot chow stalls had set up yet.
My sense is that the actual working hours after this week will be 11 - 3. Hope downtown hounds will patronize & keep it going beyond the end of its trial run -- Oct 3.
