Farmer's Market Taking Root in the Castro

New, 11 comments

Another farmer's market? Yes! This one opened in April at Noe & Market, and so far, as they say, people love it on Yelp. No big surprise -- it looks lovely. Have you stopped by it yet? How does it compare to all of the other new ones we've been seeing lately? And why are farmers' markets suddenly hot hot hot? We were going to suggest that Depression 2.0 is responsible for an uptick in buying farmer-food, but this stuff tends to be more expensive than the assembly-line junk you get in supermarkets, so who knows what the real reason is.

Of course, the usual suspects are there: vegetables, cheeses, blueberries, men walking dogs. We are above making a joke about fruits, and will instead make reference to overflowing baskets.
