Shopping at Farmers’ Markets vs. Shopping at Supermarkets – Quote

 

Farmers’ markets are a very important part of building an alternative food chain. You’re now eating in a different way. You’re eating less processed food. There is no high fructose corn syrup in the farmers’ market. There are no monoglycerides, no triglycerides. None of those additives are present in fresh, seasonal food. When you start cooking food, as opposed to buying it precooked or processed, both you and the farmer benefit, as a matter of health. – Michael Pollan, Author
