  1. Wonder what the vendors are going to do for the two hours it’s closed. Not like they are going to break down and put everything away and take it out again. I happen to work from home on Wednesdays and if I don’t get there real early a lot of times the very popular items are already sold out by 1 PM.

  2. Those later hours on Wednesday are awesome for those of us stuck in a 9-5 job that’s not in Long Beach (which, judging by the number of people lining up at the stop light at the base of the Loop every morning, is a lot).

    The milk (is Ronnybrook back?) beef and pork sounds great!

    Thanks!

  3. Nice to have local produce, but kinda wish there was more organic produce sold there. Last year there was only one organic farmer at the market.
