Farmers markets salt of the earth now
One problem with the farmer’s market we have here—weekday afternoon at rush hour.
I would go every Saturday if I could. Apparently the farmers can’t, though.
One of our local markets also got too craft-showy. Too many handmade tea cozies and no zucchini.
I remember two we had in DC—yes, downtown. One was on the Hill—Eastern Market. The other was in Adams-Morgan, the boho section of town. Cheese, honey, fresh greens, cookies, yummo!
Some people also buy shares in a farmer. Check this out from my old site, Health’s Ass.
Or there are co-ops, where someone delivers produce to you once a week or so.
Do you do any of these? Have any other ideas for cheap food?
In the last Depression, people sold apples. I don’t have any apples, though.
