Common Ground 2013: Friday at the fairground, day one
Penobscot Bay Pilot - 9/20/2013.
It’s that time of year again ... The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association’s Common Ground Country Fair. Penobscot Bay Pilot contributor Wes Sterrs wandered around the fairground Friday, Sept. 20, to snap some pictures of the first day’s events and attractions. There are two more days left. With beautiful weather on tap, get out and enjoy it!
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.
