I am tired of being lied to everywhere I go.

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.

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.

This actually makes me really sad, not just because I may be duped, but for the farmers that actually work really hard.

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.

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.

it's to the point where if you don't grow your food yourself then you don't know what you're eating.

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."

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.

While it's sad news, I do feel slightly vindicated because I've been telling my "seriously Organic" friends this for years and no one believed me. This is North America, the home of capitalism, you really think that people wouldn't lie and say their crop is organic if they can sell it a premium price?? puhleez!

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.

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

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.

99% of organic products aren’t organic at all, they are the same corporate GMO products full of chemicals. surprised people don’t know this either.

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...
