To Market To Market 10.27.2010

  • Stacy Miller writes: "Farmers markets have been defined in many ways, but never as anything resembling a chain grocery store, in which there are no farmers present, and where the dollars spent do not go directly to the local farm businesses who work so hard, on often slim margins, to grow the food that nourishes us. Farmers are, obviously, the key ingredient in any farmers market, and not solely in the form of a slick, full-color poster. I have yet to meet anyone that goes to the grocery store (‘farmers market’ branded or otherwise) to connect with their neighbors, create meaningful relationships with farmers, taste produce that was picked that morning, or ask questions about where and how their food was grown or how to prepare it. For these things, people seek out farmers markets, where they can watch first-hand the power that their dollars have in nourishing local entrepreneurship and sustainable growing practices."
