Local-Food Movement Matures
"Jon Glyn, farmers' market program manager at Farm to City, said the business has been maturing.
"I feel like we're hitting the second wave of the farmers' market movement," he said.
"For 10 or 15 years, we've had a lot of interest in farmers' markets. Every neighborhood wanted their own, and even old-school farmers that gave up on farmers' markets in the '80s and '90s are now coming back. Some of our markets are on their 10th year, and they've actually inspired this new generation of young people who are getting into farming. But they're having trouble finding spots at farmers' markets that already have established vendors, and everyone is fighting for the same dollars."
Creating a farmers' market is a science, Glyn said."
