Hi All, I haven't yet read the article to which Betty referred, but I'm 
wondering about how many folks sell produce at local Farmer's Markets.  The 
Los Angeles Times just did an article on that...I'll try to find the 
link...mentioning a specific Ventura County farm that now ONLY sells to 
Farmer's Markets, prior to which the owner was barely solvent.  Los Angeles 
County alone supports over 50 weekly Farmer's Markets.  Personally that's the 
ONLY place I buy fruit that I do not grow myself...except from a few private 
growers with whom I directly contract for specialty items, such as Ashmead's 
Kernal and Hawkeye Red Delicious apples...I haven't purchased from fruit from 
a supermarket in a number of years.  Curious in L.A., Patricia Rishel
