I love farmers markets. There is not a week that goes by in the growing months that I don't visit one. I am happy that holders of electronic benefit cards can use them to buy fresh produce for their families. But the caption under photo on Page A8 on Wednesday ("we also wanted to support the locals") makes me wonder. I do not see one locally produced fruit in the picture. Oranges, peaches, cherries, bananas? What locals are we supporting?
