Redlands may have first 'earth market'

Full story: San Bernardino County Sun

The city may have the first "earth market" in the country. Stephanie Georgieff, an acupuncturist who started a Slow Food Redlands chapter last year, attended Slow Food's Terra Madre conference in Turin, Italy, last month.

Too bad this article didn't give any details for those of us that wanted to learn what this was all about. What the heck is an "earth market" anyway, other than "a farmers market that may be the first of its kind in the United States" ... that's not much help.

Article was way over my head. Maybe it wasn't for most regular readers, but this ended up on the front page of Yahoo Local News and caught my eye. I read the whole article and left disappointed that I really didn't get the point ... For example, what does this mean to ME?? Will this "earth market" be a located at a place that I can visit and, if so, when? Sorry to be harsh ... just my 2 cents.

What's the big Deal? You already have a farmers markets in Redlands, Loma Linda, Colton, Riverside and in most Cities. People love fresh products. Earth Markets are already here there just our own farmers. Oh excuse me there not given the stamp of approval from Italy. Wow! the American Farmer does not need Italian approval to sell their goods. What a joke!

Check out the link to their website here:
http://www.earthmarkets.net and read about it. The "slow food" seal of approval is the important part. Slow Food is an international non profit organization that supports locally grown food, it's cultural and native traditions and a choice that counters fast food. It's about bringing education in what you eat and the pleasure of garden to table eating.

It's not about "Italy's seal of approval" it's about becoming part of a larger, global consciousness of health and community.

Economically good for communities and healthy eating for you...something to respect and appreciate in today's current dollar minded atmosphere. Bravo to Ms. Georgieff!

Way to sound like an isolationist, ugly American, Adam. Heaven forbid that the American public learn anything from those commie Italians.

Thank you, thank you, thank you CHERYL1960!!! You cleared up exactly what this article was lacking! I'm college educated and socially aware individual, but felt very in the dark after reading an article about something I am clearly interested in. Thanks again!!

Isn't the ground water still contaminated by rocket fuels left over from Norton Air Force Base?

Also, there was another chemical company dump site in Redlands that was supposed to be cleaned up.

Would you buy anything grown locally from these areas?

Yep. WHO, WHAT, WHERE & WHEN; SUMMARIZE.

Sadly, this is typical of writers at SBSun. Things must be so bad there that they can't get any truly educated/trained journalists/writers. I sincerely doubt any of them have ever taken a journalism course.

Thank you for the information. I do agree that we should keep the growing available to the local area.

I wanted to read through the articles to see if it was just me who was left with a big question mark at the end of this article. I share your sentiments.

Wow, thanks. Maybe they should have hired you to write the article because I feel more informed after reading this comment than I did after reading the actual article!
