  • So glad we don't have to go out of town to enjoy a farmers market....I saw on the news yesterday that Nashville's Farmers Market no longer allows venders that did not make it or grow it. I thought that was great!.....

    I went to a market in Orlando once and it stretched about 4 city blocks, from fresh caught fish to ethnic and regional items, it was unbelievable

  • I wonder what kind of response they would get if someone sold fresh farm-raised catfish or shrimp. Better yet could they do it?

    Eggs are "packaged" on the farm but anything else like meats, how is it handled now?

  • At the wharfs I've visited all seafood was displayed on crushed ice...some city codes now require it also not be subjected to open air....so it's usual behind a barrier like plexiglass but remains on ice....sneeze guards are also used in some cases....

    Most seafood we get has been previously frozen....the only fresh seafood you would find (caught that day or the day before and iced) would be to top rated restaurants and can be expensive.

  • SookBrown, please do not be offended but this appears to be a promotional link and since you are new to my blog, I am going to ask that it be removed.

    I love new participants but take a certain responsibility for anything on my blog so.....
