Harrisonburg Farmers Market is a "growers only" market; however there have
been some other items slipped in.
Jeff Ishee had written a book about farmers markets. I'll check whether I
can find a written philosophy.

Subject: [Market-farming] Grower Only Farmers Markets

I'm really interested in talking our town council into supporting a 
grower only market here. Although I can find many grower only markets 
advertised on the web, I can't seem to find any succinct 'grower only 
market' philosophy laid out, something that I could show the town 
council, something about how supporting local growers is good for the 
entire community. I thought there was actually a 'grower only market' 
advocacy group operating out of PA, but I haven't been able to find 
hide-nor-hair of that group.

Can anyone help?
