The farmers and sellers who work our local farmers markets are a big family. They watch over each other. While this girl's mother sells vegetables, the girl has about 40 babysitters keeping an eye on her.
They even watch over their customers. I once forgot my change and my tomatoes, and the booth operator tracked me down to deliver it to me. It's a big market! Other such stories abound.
The Pasadena area has three certified Farmers Markets: Tuesday mornings at Villa Parke, Thursday evenings in South Pasadena and Saturday mornings at Victory Park.
I know some of the sellers by name because I buy from them regularly. We catch up each week on families and the news. When you become a regular at the farmers market, you begin to feel like you're part of that big family.
