If I've hired dockworkers, what are my options if someone uses an event card to close the market into which I want to sell?
1. sell something else to a different market (if possible)
2. sell to the bazaar if I can't (or don't want to) sell to a different market (my understanding is that I can do this at anytime anyway, as it doesn't require a dockworker action)
3. re-assign the agent to a different action? (I suspect it's not this option, given the nature of the game)
The close market card is not a reaction card and can only be played by selecting the 'Manipulate Events' action (or by one of the house abilities that allows playing an event by doing the 'select a Contract' action).
Therefore, if the market was open when you assigned dockworkers, it is still open (although maybe not paying off as well as you hoped).
