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.

Just checking out your site that you had mentioned on the NYT blog. Look great!

BTW - I responded to your query regarding testing of thyroid disease.

Take care.

Thanks--I am trying to post weekdays but may throw in the odd extra post. Keep coming back or riss or diss me or whatever people do.
