In Newtown NSW on “Review request under...” at 1 Bedford Street Newtown NSW 2042:

M Waring commented

The little weekend market creates a nice little social centre for locals and does not draw custom away from the local shops. Having people at a market is a lot nicer way to use the square than abandoning it to the tables of a single restaurant that is based there and people who gather there to drink alcohol at other times.

Most of the stuff that is for sale is just bric a brac of the sort sold in garage sales and does not compete with local shops. I agree that the Turkish Gozleme that used to be there probably drew custom from some of the local takeaways but the other stands do not create a genuine threat to other businesses.
