Food Raves and 30 Mile food markets..are they the new Affordable Farmers Market?

We have Green Markets stretched over the the East Coast of Florida and catering mostly to the RICH and the Tourists.Prices are expensive and the vegetables are NOT LOCALLY GROWN _MOST of the TIME!!!

 

Come the growing and tourist season, main stream media deluge the so called green markets to tell the public about how fresh and local are the food at the GREEN and FARMERS MARKET.

At this quasi-clandestine monthly event, a tribal gathering of young chefs, vendors and their iron-stomached followers are remaking the traditional farmers market as an indie food rave.

At midnight, the smell of stir-fried pork bellies was wafting through the Mission district. There was live music, liquor, bouncers, a disco ball — and a line waiting to sample hundreds of delicacies made mostly on location, among them bacon-wrapped mochi (a Japanese rice paste) and ice cream made from red beets, Guinness and chocolate cake.
