White House Farmers’ Market: An Idea Whose Time Has Come?

August 21, 2009

Think of the potential for produce everywhere: Barack Obama choosing his favorite potatoes, Michelle bagging tender salad greens, Malia and Sasha squeezing peaches and pluots.

Average Janes and Joes from DC and beyond motivated to buy fresh fruits & veggies for a chance to rub shoulders with the President and his family gathering ingredients for dinner.

The Prez’s announcement yesterday about plans for a White House Farmers’ MarketĀ  — check out the informative and frequently fun Obama Foodorama for details — is a bit exciting for anyone passionate about the prospect of folks eating more greens.
