Re: “What Works, and Doesn't, About Farmers Markets?

"Some people wonder if prepared-foods sellers who don't use local ingredients — and are therefore not supporting local farms — should be allowed at farmers markets. But in areas where people have less disposable income, the opportunity to purchase less expensive food may be essential to attracting them to the market. In Chittenden County, many of the food businesses that rely on non-local ingredients are owned by New Americans and provide them both an income and a means of sharing their culture."

I appreciate this paragraph so much. Its such a good reminder that there are so many factors to consider when thinking about "good" food. I try to be aware of eating things grown close to home, and I also want to support small businesses. Sometimes this is mutually exclusive, sometimes not. Thank you for this article Suzanne.
