Farmer's Markets ARE NOT!

The other day I was in No Frills in Airdrie. A person from a communal farm came in and bought large quantities of vegetables that were on sale. He then took them out to his truck. His truck already had boxes in it of all sorts of produce.
The next day my wife and I were at a Farmers Market. Guess who was there selling his produce? I asked them if he grew these on their property. He assured me he did. I then said "Funny, I was in No Frills in Airdrie yesterday and you were buying these items in large quantities on sale." He glared at me and turned his back , walked away and his wife lost her ability to speak English. Amazing!
If you are buying fruit or vegetables, be sure who grew it. We have an excellent source from Markerville that is west of Red Deer and we have stood in her garden. We know she grows her items.
