The Dallas Farmers Market’s new policy is more controversial than it seems | Farm To Table

The Dallas Farmers Market has decreed that from now till March 31, farmers will be allowed to sell non-local fruits and vegetables beside their own.

Good news or bad news? You be the judge.

This produce must be clearly labeled with signage provided by market management, and market staff will monitor.

“If it is from a farm and we can verify where it is from, it can be sold,” Nancy Barber, director of the Dallas Farmers Market, wrote in an email. It must be “purchased directly from farms.”

This, to provide a wider array of fruits and vegetables to those who shop The Shed.
