Farmers Markets: What's Cooking

I do a lot of writing and teaching about problems in the global food system. As recently as yesterday, I posted a link about the McRib sandwich, a near-perfect embodiment of the brutal efficiencies of a food system that disdains both its producers and its customers.

But later last night, I wrote about a growing movement to do things right. Farmers markets bring people together around fresh, local food. Supply chains are shortened, processing is minimized, and the environment benefits in any number of ways. The food actually looks, smells, feels, sounds, and tastes like food, so I posted my comments about the film To Market, To Market to Buy a Fat Pig on my family's cooking blog: Una Nueva Receta Cada Semana.
