But let's stop and think for just a second: there's a stand that sells pop corn. I asked where their corn came from, and they couldn't even answer. Most probably not from southern california. And yet they're considered local, because they make the pop-corn right there at the Farmer's market. Hmmm.
Same goes for those guys selling roasted conventionally mass produced chicken, which, for all I know, come from another side of the country: they roast them right there on the Farmer's market, so they're local.
Same with the fruit juice stand, the burrito stand, the crepe stand, etc...: fruits from other countries, burrito meat from other countries, flour from who knows where...: local products, because they are cooked at the market.
I went back to see that woman who sells clothes, and told her all she'd have to do to resume her business selling clothes imported from Europe is to apply a sticker, or maybe saw a little patch somewhere on the clothes. Then they'd be considered locally made.
Kinda ridiculous, don't you think?
Oh and by the way, the guy selling kids made-in-China balloons at the entrance of the market? He inflates the balloons at his house before he shows up to the market, so they're local as well.
