The community poll just ended at goGardenNow.com asked the question: "Where would you prefer to buy your food?"
100% of respondents replied: "Farmer's Market"
That is an amazing result. It begs the question, "Why is Y'all Mart so full of shoppers?"
Admittedly, the poll is not a professional sampling, so perhaps that explains it. Or perhaps grocery stores draw customers because they carry a broader selection of products. Few farmer's markets carry toilet paper and crackers.
Obviously, many shoppers prefer farmer's markets and would visit them more often if they could. We'll try to learn why in the next Community Poll. If you don't know where to find a farmer's market in your area, check out the web site at Local Harvest.
