Occupy Union Square -- but has anyone been considering the impact of Occupation on the Union Square Greenmarket, which runs Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays?
I shop there each week, and I know the farmers who haul their produce and other goods at 4:00 AM from outside NYC will not be amused to find the park barricaded and a mass of people with placards blocking their stand locations. The greenmarket represents a good way of living -- the type of food production/consumption we should be wholeheartedly supporting. THIS is real food.
I joined this forum for this very purpose of asking OWS to please stay clear of the greenmarket stands areas. Ideally, OWS would stay clear of all of Union Square as a site for "occupying." Impeding people from getting to/from the greenmarket four times a week would be detrimental to the farmers.
Thanks for listening/considering.
