While organizers negotiate terms of a possible compromise with the Los Angeles Film School over access to a parking garage, the Hollywood Farmers' Market has been given the green beans green light to continue operation for at least another 90 days.

"Market officials won a 90-day extension of their street closure permit after Los Angeles City Councilman Eric Garcetti met with them and representatives from the film school Thursday. In a statement released early Saturday morning, Garcetti said both sides had agreed that the market at Ivar and Selma avenues, a local attraction since 1991, should remain in the neighborhood," reports the LA Times. Garcetti stated that both sides agreed the size of the market should not be reduced.

In this time, the market will study possible layout adjustments and alternative street configuration while the film school reviews options in parking structure access. The 90-day extension, issued by the Board of Public Works, will expire on April 12.
