Katherine just got her wish … Mayor Garcetti just announced the temporary suspension of all farmer’s markets in Los Angeles to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
If markets want to open back up, they need to submit a plan detailing how they would keep workers and shoppers safe and prevent the spread of the virus.

Katherine Schwarzenegger is just one of many Angelenos up in arms over the amount of people at a local farmer’s market — and she’s asking the Mayor to step in and shut it down.
Kat, along with several other people, tagged and responded to Mayor Eric Garcetti’s message to citizens Sunday … pointing out just how packed the Brentwood Farmer’s Market was this morning, with not too many people practicing social distancing at all.
The photos circulating online are stunning — you’d never guess anyone was under quarantine or safer-at-home orders … it looks like a regular weekend in L.A., even though it really isn’t. KS wrote, “The farmers market in Brentwood still being open seems like a huge issue when it comes to social gatherings 👏🏽” The implication … please put a stop to this, Mister Mayor.
