MAXWELL ST. MARKET LARGER
The city market at Maxwell street,
where hundreds of pushcart mer
chants sell to residents of the
ghetto and the great West Side at
prices far below those of the loop,
started out on a new, bigger step in
its career today.
Several weeks ago the city, coun
cil at the request of Aid. Miller and
Franz granted the sidewalk mer
chants permission to extend their
market for three blocks west of Hal
sted on Maxwell.
Up to this time they had been per
mitted to' stand their carts only on
Maxwell for three blocks east of Hal
sted. They were overcrowded and,
with the advent of unreasonably high
prices, truck farmers wanted tOjCome
in from the outskirts of the city to
sell alongside -the peddlers who
bought from the commission men.
This could not be done because
there was not enough room for the
out-of-town wagons. The opening
of the other three blocks scheduled
for today will give them all a chance
to place along the curb and sell.
An invitation to fanners was offer
