Please check the spelling of "restauranteurs." There is no such word.

As usual, the writer tried several different spellings of "farmers' market, farmer's market, farmers market, " hoping, I suppose, to get credit for whichever one is correct. Sloppiness in the writing of the article makes readers question whether the writer was equally sloppy in the facts. Hurts credibility.

@sigh: Thank you for drawing our attention to a couple of errant apostrophes. They've been eradicated.

As for "restauranteurs" not being a word, I'm afraid my Webster's New World dictionary begs to differ with you, as it recognizes both "restaurateur" and "restauranteur" as correct spellings.
