Farmers' Market Etiquette re-post

Ooh, it's thundery out there. I'm about to go skin another eggplant. Feels appropriately quasi-horror-movie-esque for an ominous night.

On a cheerier note, here's a good post from The Kitchn on farmers' market etiquette. The MFM totally welcomes babies and strollers and what have you, but please check your dogs in at the pet-sitting tent! The health department won't allow them inside the market.

I have to say, though, that the biggest news among the corps of volunteers last summer was the mom who decided to breast-feed her infant in the middle of the market. Our market manager politely asked her to cover up. (Have avoided all bad puns about melons, raw milk, etc. Or is it too late now?) Central Station on a Saturday morning might be one of the most crunchy places in Memphis, but it seems we have not gone that far yet.
