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?

Can I:
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).

My favorite option is to tell them to read the card.

Thanks both - I'll tell myself to read the card too!
