  1. Shop wisely. Not everything at the River Market Farmers’ Market is local.

    That having been said, I am SO happy that it is market season once again!!!

  2. You’re so right about being careful at the River Market Farmers’ Market. I think a good rule of thumb is to shop from its Asian vendors. They grow produce organically, and they sell interesting veggies.

    I’m SOOOO happy about the market season, too!

  3. I agree–shop the Asian vendors. I’ve been enjoying lemongrass and mint and green onions in my kitchen all week!

  4. Hi, Melanie! Thanks for reading! I checked out your blog. It’s AWESOME!!! Are you Vietnamese? I’m Japanese, and I find many non-Asians are hesitant about Asian groceries. If you’re non-Asian, you’re one of the few people I’ve met who are steeped in Asian culture. I wish more people would take interest because I think you can expand your horizon so much! I’ve thought about doing a mini-tour of the Asian vendors at the market so that more non-Asians would shop from them. Anyone interested?
