Earth Day is almost over but it's not to late to join the No GMO Challenge.
Let's not give Monsanto any more of our hard-earned cash!
(The True Food Network has also published a guide to non-GMO shopping).

My trip took me from
I can always find a Farmers Market.
What surprised me about the Sarasota Farmers Market was the amount of vendors that were not farmers at all. In fact, a large amount of the produce there was shipped in from elsewhere. I guess the requirements don’t include having to have locally grown food. That is really a shame since that’s what farmers markets are for. It was also conveniently located across the street from the Whole Foods. I didn’t see much difference in shopping at one over the other.
I did, however, manage to find some local food.
Although commercially grown,
There was a nice selection of fresh seafood from the Gulf and some interesting sandwich choices.
Every farmers market has to have some local entertainment,
along with some local activism
(this woman was trying to get a petition against gerrymandering signed).
