Apparently some of the folks at farmer’s market’s aren’t even farmers! The Wall Street Journal says that some produce vendors at your local greenmarket might just be folksy resellers who stocked up outside the city. Let’s call them fauxmers. Some markets are setting up inspection committees (like the Rembrandt committee?) to weed out these modern-day Bartles and Jaymes types. I’m personally hoping for a Clark Rockefeller scenario to play out, with the requisite “Law & Order” to follow.
I have gotten nearly every obsession of mine into the blog lately. Soon it won’t be about foodies at all, just my musings on culture.
