The photo on the right is from my local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), Home Sweet Farm who runs a Monthly Market Day. You can read a little bit about them at Examiner.com. While a CSA is not a farmer's market many of them do eventually get large enough to participate in farmer's markets. I think it's a great thing to support a farmer whether through the CSA, the farmer's market, or even buy purchasing local produce or products that may appear at your neighborhood grocery store.
If you don't have a local farmer's market see if you can start one in your area; if you are lucky enough to have one, show them the love and vote today.
