Foodie’s Paradise 3

sloganFarmer Markets sind sowohl in Berkeley als auch in San Francisco und weiteren Städten sehr beliebt. Sie finden an mehreren Tagen statt, in Berkeley am Dienstag, Donnerstag und Samstag, immer in anderen Stadtteilen. Dahinter steht die 1969 in Berkeley gegründete non-profit organization „the ecology center„.

organicDie Organisation beschreibt die Farmers‘ Markets als „festive, family-friendly, open-air marketplaces where California farmers bring fresh, locally-grown produce and farm-processed foods to sell directly to consumers. Our markets feature fruits, vegetables, nuts, baked goods, jams and preserves, juices, olive oils, tofu, meat, cheese, prepared foods, nursery plants, and flowers. Often, musicians entertain the shoppers, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. We are committed to supporting small-scale farmers who practice sustainable agriculture.“
