Our View: Farmer’s market a welcome addition

July 25, 2007

Our hat is off to the Historical Farmer's Market, which is taking up residence each Saturday morning in the parking lot at Tonganoxie High School.

Local vendors of home-grown produce selling to local buyers isn't a novel idea. But it's a good one. On one hand, the farmer's market helps supplement incomes for small, local growers. On the other, the market gives consumers the opportunity to buy produce that's so fresh it may have been picked earlier that day.

No offense to hot house tomatoes, but the taste of a fresh-off-the-vine tomato is something we relish and something that is coming into plentiful supply at the farmer's market.

So thanks should go out to the organizers and vendors of the market. We hope this is the first of many successful years.
