Me: Dole.

The most ironic part about these markets-
1. The produce REJECTED from the supermarkets ends up there.
2. Real farmers (like that cute lady) weren't allowed to sell.

I’m going to start asking if I can visit their farm every time a vendor claims their produce is locally grown from now on. I never even thought about asking that question before.

I worry about people, who actually have a life and don't spend all their day on youtube, that they can't get this information and are getting duped.

It's amazing they claim to be farmers but are too lazy to even take the stickers off.

The guy on the board of the Farmer's Market, "That takes time..." Translation: "We don't care as long as our vendors make money."

The Board of Directors guy with 'it takes time' as an excuse is full of crap. It does not take time to tell resellers to be honest about what portion of their products are grown by t hem and which are bought from wholesalers. You put up a sign. You have sections. And you don't lie when folks ask if you grew the food. That's a pretty simple thing to demand of farmer's market sellers: be honest about sourcing. I actually have no problem with resellers. I have a problem with lying, with fraud. If you only sell 1 item and the rest is wholesale produce, then just admit it. Put up a sign to show what is local....tag the rest as NOT family farming/local farming. The BoD needs to stop enabling fraud.

Wow. actual investigative journalism without a political bias. This hasn't existed here in the U.S. since 2004.

"We've been working on transparency with our farmers, but that takes time." It takes time to stop lying to your customers? Like more than 10 minutes?

Most of these dumbasses don't even put in the effort to at least take off the sticker before selling them to make it less obvious.

Tips for not being an idiot:

1) If its not the season for that fruit or veggie, then its not local.
2) If it has a sticker or is shrink wrapped or "packaged professionally" then its not local.
3) If it is "oddly" shaped or colored then its probably more likely to be local
4) Most grocery store fruit and veggies are mainstream hybrids and not the more "natural" variety that people tend to steer clear from in the grocery store. Local farm grown is usually different varieties that look different than in the store. The produce in the farmers market should be various colors, sizes and shapes. If all the produces looks exactly alike, then its probably not from a local farm.

Its not rocket science. I guess its just different for us here in the Midwest of the US. Our farmers markets are small and everyone tends to actually know the people selling things. It must be different in big cities.

I am a farmer selling at the Boulder Farmer's Market in Colorado (20+ years). Only growers from Boulder County (and a few from outside the county) are allowed to sell, and it is strictly enforced. We farmers all know and support each other and it would very difficult to be reselling without your fellow farmers knowing. Reselling would get you kicked out as our only mission is to support local ag. It's a shame that other markets around the country don't support their farmers and market customers in this way. It makes some of our potential customers less trusting and less willing to support us. Ask a lot of questions of your farmer and get to know them and how they grow your produce, and ask what gives them the passion to grow food (when the amount of money to be made is so very little.) You'll be able to connect with the ones who are honest and develop a relationship over time.

So essentially you are paying more for produce that you think is local, but in reality, it's much worse? It's actually the stuff that gets REJECTED from the wholesaler. LMFAO wow how nice of them.

All the resellers should be charged with fraud. Farmers markets are for local farmers not resellers or big companies.

9 times out of 10, if someone can’t look you in the eye long enough to say yes, especially if they were already looking at you, it’s a pretty good chance they’re lying...

From a food waste perspective, I wouldn't mind if they had a wholesale market at a different venue. It's still food. The way they're edging out local farmers and raising prices is sleazy though.

I have farmed 28 years on the Gulf Islands, and my wife and I grow 50 different food crops. You can walk up my driveway any time and see me planting and picking MY fruit and vegetables! Everything we sell, we grew
