5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and well written, November 26, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Farmers' Market Book: Growing Food, Cultivating Community (Quarry Books) (Paperback)
I recommend this work highly. I have been researching farmers' markets for several years and ordered this book thinking it would give me some ideas of how Bloomington's market was organized. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the book was much wider in scope. The history of farmers markets around the world was especially interesting and well written. (The author, by the way, is an English professor). Also included are stories of farmers and growers, relationships at farmers markets, trials of growing crops and more. The photographs are excellent and the book is a joy to read. Useful for anyone interested in farmers markets or growing good food.

5.0 out of 5 stars A romp through the garden, September 12, 2007

This review is from: The Farmers' Market Book: Growing Food, Cultivating Community (Quarry Books) (Paperback)
By the end of the first chapter, this book had moved me enough to take a break from the reading and write a thankyou note to the authors. Bloomington, IN hosts one of the country's great farmer's markets and the academics turned market vendors who wrote the book weave a wonderful story of not only their experiences, but a well researched history of farm markets in general and the larger vision of local food systems.

Highly recommended, a beautifully created and very readable book.
