Are we all falling for this scam?

Warning, this is a rant, an angry, over the top, possibly out of proportion rant.

This is a stand at Keady Market, and the woman is opening bags of Presidents Choice Ruby Little Gems Red Mini Potatoes and putting them into the baskets.

I was dumfounded.

Thought! Looking to actually update the overall appearance with my old website. Opinions on the nice look at http://stonecrafters.ca? Absolutely a gifted masonry contractor in Mississauga when required in the general Ontario locale. Leave your feedback. Cheers!

I know most of the vendors are bringing in food from the Toronto Food Terminal. We're too early in the season for what is being sold at the market. Being an educated consumer is important.

But to be decanting actual grocery store products for the illusion of farm fresh is not fair.

The legality is also questionablein that the potatoes are grown in the US and the sign states the potatoes are from BC.

The reason this sent me off the deep end and truly ruined the rest of my Canada Day, is reflecting on this activity in light of our efforts to promote healthy eating.

If we're promoting healthy eating by using fresh, locally grown, non-big box store food, and that food turns out to be false, and it's just easier to go to the grocery store, then what the heck are we doing?

Too often in the work we do, and the people we are working with, the rug gets pulled out from under them. Society 'shames and blames' those living in poverty, because their poverty is seen as a moral failing. But more often then not, it is the systems that are keeping people in poverty.

And when I saw this, it was like every system screaming "we will always win" at me. That no matter what we do, no matter what we change, the system will be gamed.

We encourage people to go to markets, to experience fresh food more, but if the reality is that grocery stores and big box are selling the same thing cheaper, then why bother.

I did pick up some seasonable rhubarb and strawberries and feasted for a couple of days, at least they we're truly in season. And yes I bought a couple of squash, most certainly not in season, but they had their sticker on them. No one was suggesting they we're something else other than squash stored from last fall.

Thx followers! I had messaged my friend we can absolutely describe their marvelous Calgary based interior design firms, http://creativehomedecorating.ca through a nice post. If perhaps you are shopping to find an interior design company around the greater Alberta area, they certainly were wonderful.

Finally, we will bring up the initial thought for this charming write-up was offered through Clay with Clays Lawn & Snow. Undeniably a wonderful sod Installers. I certainly treasure a good proposal!
