Harry's Pizzeria will not be at the Farmer's Market

That Harry's Pizzeria event that was to be held at the Farmer's Market has been canceled. 

Glasser Farms, that runs the market says that they aren't really comfortable with the mobile oven and the smell of smoke and baking pizzas.

Hopefully another area could be found to have the portable pizza ovens somewhere else in the Grove. I've seen pizza ovens at other farmers markets, I'm not sure why the Glasser people are against it. Maybe it's just too dangerous in close quarters.

I think Harry's is MUCH better off not locating at the Grand Ave. Farmer's Market. He should locate at the old Thursday market place or where the Glass House restaurant will be.

Glasser has got to be kidding. Something to distract people from the stench of an overpriced market would be a good thing

Glasser better give away free pizzas AND lower their galactic prices.

Actually, there was a major news story on "SMOKE" given off by any and all fires. The report stated that test demonstrated the fired fueled smoke was 400% more harmful to the lungs than tobacco. I've noticed after being the cook in my family for over 50 years that if I breathed in the smoke from my bar-b-ques and electric store cooking using oil, if I breathed in the smoke I would cough for several days. Plus, people living down wind from bar-be-que restaurants suffered higher rates of lung cancer. Fires from folks clearing land to grow crops appears to add to global warming and serious lung damage down wind. Jobie Steppe

What about all the fine restaurants in town with grills?
Would you have to have a direct feed to reach that 400%?
In any event, the short temporary duration wouldn't harm anyone.

Don't be dim witted Mark. 10 years of research went into this report, fire fighters with tanks of fresh air strapped to their backs, 25,000,000 Chinese walking about daily with mask over their mouth & nose to breath through, 2'd hand tobacco smoke causes cancer, hundreds of incinerators went off line due to increased cancer downwind, etc., etc., etc., the list is endless and only dim witted folks deny such realities. Oh, you smoke 3 packs a day, do ya, never mind, keep on smoking Marlboro Man! Are we taxpayers going to pay to have that cancer removed from your lungs. No me pal, so continue to ignore reality.

Jobie. You had to go there! Personal attacks do not further your agenda. I'm tempted to call you a name that you've now proven yourself to be. Nonetheless, we're talking about a total of 10 hours of BBQ. Nobody's gonna die. Good thing the BBQ place across the street isn't there anymore, right!? BTW, I use to go to this market all the time when it was in its original space. The Asian fritters were very popular. They were fried in oil & we all lived to tell the story.

Mark, yes, I had to go there because gadflies like you fail to respond to posted facts. Lets keep this simple, smoke causes cancer. And firefighters wear tanks full of fresh air and millions of Chinese wear mask to avoid dust made up from smoke/pollution and 10's of millions of humans die annually from numerous forms of toxic smoke. HELLO! The researchers resulting in the news reports I watched purposefully spent millions and millions of dollars to inform the citizens of the world how to avoid all forms and degrees of toxic smoke. Mark, Mark HELLO, smoke, plain old smoke from burning forest, coal, combustible engines, tobacco products, and yes millions and millions and millions of open pit fires, otherwise known as a bar-b-que, throughout the world add up to millions and millions of useless death and breathing difficulties. Many children suffer and die suffering. You don't know this and dismiss the concept of toxic smoke tapping out a few words on your computer - - - - look up the meaning of dim witted and then call me whatever word you choose to call me for lionizing the harm a bar-be-q grill can have on some folks. A little here, (radiation) a little there (smoke) and perhaps just a little cancer to just a little piece of some lung. Maybe you don't give a damn, but I do and you didn't disagree with me, you disagreed with a well entrenched body of fact and medical history, smoke kills. And Mark, this isn't personal, so call me some name and I'll respond with more facts about smoke. Jobie Steppe

While your points may be true, they have just about zero to do with the subject,
which in case you forgot was the setting up of a very temporary pizza oven for a few hours.
With all the real issues surrounding air pollution & health, you're wasting everybody's time
with a stick-in-the-mud issue that doesn't amount to much of anything.
Good luck shutting down every restaurant that grills & all those backyard BBQs.

Your 1st remark (3:29) was contemptuous. At 12:00 AM you commented there would have to be "direct feed" to achieve a 400% increase in risk due to health considerations. You wrote "And the short duration's of exposure would harm no one". You said what about all the fine restaurants with grills? You finished with "While your facts may be true, they have zero to do with the subject". yet the subject of the blog was "the smell of smoke". You've dismissed "the smell of smoke" i.e., the toxic inhalation of carcinogenic fumes, combustion engines, etc., as being inconsequential to the millions and millions of people who die annually throughout the world, and of folks with breathing problems, or young children with developing lungs and the increase temperature of earth and the melting of the ice caps. In Texas a law has been passed and scrubbers must be placed on all bar-b-q grills at restaurants to protect the public from what you simply dismiss as a gadfly. Mark, do you really believe that smog is good for humans to breath in? Jobie Steppe
