Anti-mask protesters force farmers’ market to close early

Anti-mask protesters in the ByWard Market forced farmers and business owners at the new York Street Farmers’ Market to pack up their produce early Saturday, saying the weekly protests ending on York Street were making their staff and customers feel unsafe.

Three weeks after the market launched, vendors said Saturday they were discouraged that the presence of maskless protesters in and outside a nearby business was forcing the market to close one hour earlier than usual.
