JFX Farmers Market: Do some stands sell supermarket produce?

kukubura | Jul 18, 2010 11:36 AM

As much as I love the farmers market - and I really do - there are a few stands that trouble me. Either they have a bizarre assortment of produce that I can't imagine one farm planting, or their produce looks a little TOO uniform, or as I saw today, their produce has those little tiny stickers that you see on each individual piece at the super market, with a bar code or SKU number or something. Are they getting their stuff at Bel Air produce? Is it just the usual trucked-up-from-Guatemala stuff that we go to the Farmers Market to avoid? I feel like a dummy for not knowing the answer to this already.
