Farmers market relocation

Dear Editor:Regarding the relocation of the farmers market: 1.) The crowded walking area is chewed up and uneven, creating a dangerous situation - especially for wheelchairs. 2.) The parking is severely limited; if you need handicapped access, forget it. You cannot get all the way around in a wheelchair because of the placement of the booths and the parking curbs. At the 2nd Street end, the slant of the gutter is a dangerous situation; I predict someone will take a spill. Sounds to me like this should be an ADA issue. Finally, the vendors are unhappy. Can anyone confirm that the relocation was politically influenced by Porto's? Katie Wright Downey
