The food movement’s final frontier: taking care of workers
Grist - 6/6/2012.
By Twilight Greenaway – Rita has worked for the same Missouri-based pork processing company for 13 years. And yet she feels like she could lose her job at any time. If this 49-year-old mother of four is late for work by as little as five minutes, that’s one strike. If she takes more than her allotted seven minutes to race to the bathroom and back, that’s another strike. Three strikes is all it takes.
Bangor farmers’ market finds success on first day in spite of rain, vendors say
Bangor Daily News - 6/4/2012.
By Nick McCrea – Bangor: It has been years in the making, but downtown Bangor finally has its farmers’ market.

In spite of the weather, dozens of people perused the market, crowding under tents where they could to avoid the heavier spurts of rain.

Castine Patriot - 6/4/2012.
