Farmers’ Market

by Tom Sims


It is an open, inviting, and friendly environment for shopping and learning. Yes! Learning! The staff is there to stock shelves, check out customers, and to educate. It is not that everyone knows about everything, but everyone knows how to find the person who knows about the thing you want to know.

For some years now, I have been exploring the question: How do you eat for health in the Valley?
How do you do it when you have to find a common place to eat with people who have other needs, interests, or tastes? How about the changing demands of your physical condition, which require restrictions, additions, and special considerations and balances?

Manny and Mary Yanez are those two people and, out of their vision, Manny’s need to do something with his time, and Manchester Mall’s welcome to morning walkers, a great venture was launched.

You can eat healthy food in the Fresno/Clovis area and it is easier than you think.
If you want to go to the bottom line of healthy eating, get down to earth. I mean real earth, dirt. Compost organic material and cultivate your own soil. Buy good seeds, plant and grow your own organic garden. If you have a yard, you can have a mini-farm. If you have a patio, you can have some plants.

Years ago, at the height of the family farm, the farmer planned his chores around the weekly trip to town on Friday night. This is when the family would do the week’s shopping and catch up on the local gossip. Stores were generally open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and catered to the farmer’s needs. In the mid-1960s, as the family farm became less and less profitable, the stores stopped staying open late and many closed or left town. Now the tide has turned.

One of the beauties of living in California is the rich bounty our soil produces. California generates over 350 crops, several of which are grown only in California! So how is it that we convince ourselves to settle for the quality of produce typical of a grocery store?
