This is what $31.00 bought me at the Fulton Street Farmer’s Market this morning. Is it cheaper than what I would have paid at a local grocery store? Probably. Fresher? Almost certainly. More neighborly? Absolutely!
And the specific items which were bought at a wholesaler and resold here (and you KNOW it happens)…well, I would still rather buy it here than in a supermarket.
…And FYI, the little zip-loc bag between the asparagus and the tomatoes is cilantro, not pot – although I imagine people selling pot at a farmer’s market would make a KILLING!
