Farmers' Market Deception (Outrage)

Call me naive, but I believe a farmers market should be made up of vendors, or local farmers that grow their own produce. This was not the case at our local farmers market...although the produce looked so lovely on that warm summer morning, much to our dismay we learned that most of the produce(picutred above), was in fact brought in from some other place. We do not know the exact location. The vendors selling it really didn't know if there had been pesticides, or chemicals of any kind used. I was quite outraged by this, as my hsuband and I are deeply committed to growing/buying mostly organic produce. I don't think we will go back to this particular market, except maybe to buy some more of that delicious goat's milk soap from the goat lady. Jacob picked it out himself, as he much more preferred the berries and cream scent to any others she had. They all smelled wonderful, but at $4 a bar, we only chose one. The airplane man was so kind to give Jacob a little propeller on a stick, what fun we had with that. We had fun despite our disappointment over the veggies. Family time is so important to us, our baby is growing up so fast and we want to spend as much time together as possible.
