Side Note: Not all Farmers Market produce is the same. In fact, there is confusion swirling around certified organic. I had to do a little research to dig in to what I have purchased.
First, what is organic? The USDA site states the following: Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods that integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used.
Be aware, unless the booth signage clearly states USDA or Certified Organic — it probably isn’t.
