The Farmers' Market would be a great place; HOWEVER, their products are excessively overpriced, which precludes those of us with a limited income to shop there.

I find that I can get good value by purchasing just what I need in smaller amounts, and by being selective. Also, I don't mind paying a little bit more knowing that it is going directly to the grower and that it will circulate back through the area. I agree that some of the products are over priced, but we have freedom of choice and can pick and choose...

He was a pear mogul. Thomas Pears, the packing sheds...some rumors about the current Thomas Pear Co being in trouble financially.

Pear Tree Center was Thomas property before it became a shopping center.

Thank you. Yes, I do understand what you are saying and it makes perfect sense. Trouble is: when I am being charged $3+ for a head of lettuce (and the price is determined by weight no less!) then I quit.:-(
