In the 8 years I've been going to the farmers market, i've noticed a gradual increase in the crowds at the alemany farmers market. but this years, it feels like a much more significant increase in the crowds - felt in the traffic, which is worse than ever, and the increase in vendors, a positive thing imho.
just out of curiosity, i'm curious to hear what others think is driving this.is it the lower cost of food there for better quality? is it refugees from the insultingly expensive prices at the ferry bldg market now that people pinch more pennies? increased interest in eating local produce?
