One of the biggest complaints I hear when it comes to buying fresh or shopping local is the expense. Well I am here to tell you that shopping at the farmer’s market doesn’t have to be expensive.
Our farmlands are the last redoubt of gentler capitalism. A dozen is inevitably a baker’s dozen, and the numbers on the scale always seem to be rounded down. We’ve bought fish on the promise to pay later; flowers by karmic donation; honey from an unattended stall.
