Farner’s Markets

Farmers' marketing and markets

Farmers' marketing and markets

Living in both San Francisco and New York the past decade has allowed me to take advantage of some fantastic farmers’ markets. So it came as a surprise for me to learn that only 1% of the total food produced in the U.S. comes from farmers’ markets. (Perrin seemed just as confounded in her post about the New Amsterdam Market.) Why aren’t more people enjoying these bounties?
