A longtime rural resident, I use my 60 plus years of life learning to opinionate here and elsewhere on the “interweb” on everything from politics to environmental issues. A believer in reasonable discourse rather than unhelpful attacks I try to give positive input to the blogesphere, so feel free to comment upon rural issues or anything else posted here. But don’t be surprised if you comments get zapped if you are not polite in your replys.

Farmers Not Welcome

A CBC investigation exposed how some vendors at the Peterborough Farmers' Market were misleading consumers by claiming to grow fruits and vegetables that were actually purchased at a wholesale food terminal. The reaction from the Peterborough & District Farmers' Market Association (PDFMA) was to eject the FARMERS who brought this to their attention and NOT TAKE ANY ACTION regarding those that pretended to be actual growers of the produce they were selling.
What a sad reflection of the state of this 'farmers market' board!
