Dallas farmers market was supposed to be a place where everyone is welcome, but things have turned sour in the past two weeks.
The market has closed for the second consecutive week.
The market’s closure was announced by the Dallas Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) on Wednesday, with people being asked to return on Thursday.
According to a statement, the department will host a meeting on Thursday at 7 p.m. to “review the situation.”
On Thursday, more than 100 people were arrested after the Dallas City Council passed an ordinance that allows for a limited number of arrests at farmers markets.
The Dallas Farmers Markets Association (DFA), a local group of farmers, had said that “all the farmers have a right to free speech, and the City Council has the right to restrict that right.”
The city of Dallas is the second largest city in Texas with a population of more than 11 million.
It is the third largest city with a metro area population of nearly 2.7 million people.
