Organic ---- Farmers?

   What an opportunity!  Visiting Nanaimo's downtown farmer's market gives unsuspecting yuppie shoppers yet another reason to dig deep in their pockets for another piece of plastic to pay for overpriced "organic" goods.    Also can someone please explain to me what a foot massage has to do with a "farmer's market"?
    And while I'm on this rant can someone explain to me why local produce is almost twice the price of local stores?  Is anyone else aware that local produce should not have shipping costs added to it's price?  Shouldn't that make it somewhat less expensive to bring to market than the same type of produce that was just shipped in from Australia?

Just asking ....
