I grew up in New Jersey and often accompanied my grandfather to local farmers markets where the goal was great produce at a cheaper price than the supermarket.
I moved to Los Angeles in the later 1990's and discovered the many (expensive) markets here.
My sister lives in New York and sometimes refers to the NYC "greenmarkets".
So, my question is, have NYC fathers markets always been refereed to as greenmarkets? If not, when did the switch occur, and why?
