Farmers' Markets

The LA County Agricultural Commission is taking a closer look at the produce sold at local farmers markets to make sure that vendors are following the rule: if you didn't grow it, don't sell it. Violators are fined up to $1,000 or suspended from selling, but the cost of enforcing the rules amounts to three times what farmers markets make the county in taxes. [LA Times]
