Farmers market vendors should offer affordable prices [Letter]
I am appalled at the vendors' opinions quoted in your July 25 article about Howard County farmers' markets. Given the rate of obesity in this country, and the rise of obesity-related diseases in children, encouraging families to shop for fresh, local produce should be a priority. Instead, the farmers overcharge and collude on pricing (it's painfully obvious that the prices are fixed when every vendor sells at the exact the same price).
