Occupy LA costs farmers market business

Long before the Occupy Los Angeles protesters pitched tents in front of L.A. City Hall, another group regularly occupied that space – farmers. Every Thursday for the last four years, the City Hall farmers market would set up on the south lawn and sell vegetables, baked goods and prepared meals. Now that an encampment has claimed their space, the farmers have had to move their market across Main Street. Vendors say the change is hurting their business.
