A farmers market opened in Macclenny last week to rave reviews. This made me wonder if the shift to local farm products might actually be real and happening across America. "Grown locally" is a phrase I've heard used recently by chefs, restaurants, & consumers alike. Along with do-it-yourself above ground gardens and spice buckets, people are beginning to see the benefits of fresh, home-grown products & vegetables that haven't been out of the ground too long. Heck, we've got cilantro, basil & scallions growing ourselves, and my neighbor's back yard looks like a tomato farm. My brother is doing the "upside-down tomato bucket thing," another recent trend with the price of tomatoes sky-rocketing.
More stuff to post later.
