“I sell Mediterranean food. We are here from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and I get here at 6 to set up. I’m usually by myself but Sasha is a student here at the university who helps me. As soon as the market opened I was one of [the first sellers] that came back at the beginning. It was my choice. I think some other vendors really don’t know the details, but It’s okay. I think the office determines how many vendors can come back because of the spacing. We think that the students don’t have anywhere else to go and this is an outlet for them. So all of a sudden we have the students and the local people coming back, so the market is pretty busy. When the students came back to the market we made the pie pieces bigger. We wanted people to have more to eat.”
