    What would they be and how would they be stored? Potatoes and onions in a cool dark barn perhaps.

    People like farm fresh produce where ever and when ever they can get them in season. Obviously it is because it tastes better.

    Somehow I suspect "drive more" hasn't spent enough time outside of his or her car to realize that you can grow and store many delicious foods over the winter to sell at markets.

    Why have a farmers market or community garden in winters months? Nothing grows in the winter, it is to cold and not enough sunlight. Maybe with more global warming but not yet.

    This is so important and helps so many areas of life. Makes our city greener literally, helps the local economy on many levels, makes our lives greener by eating healtier local food, less food shipped in, more children involved in food means more healthy adults less medicare down the road.. the advantages are endless.. we need to do this!

    I would like to see a farmer and craft market set up in Hastings Park - one of the buildings that might be used for this is the old Rollerland or possibly for Forum.
