It’s that time of year again ... The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association’s Common Ground Country Fair.

How to bring farmers markets to the urban poor
The Washington Post - 9/20/2013.
By Michael Lipsky - Last month, I spent a day selling for the first time at another market in Takoma Park, Md. – the Crossroads Farmers Market. Though Crossroads is just two miles from the Sunday market, the customers couldn’t be more different. Crossroads is in the poorest of Takoma Park’s four neighborhoods and also serves Langley Park and other low-income areas nearby.
