Late Season Farmer’s Market Guide

After a long absence, Czech farmer’s markets reappeared in 2010, after a long disappearance during the communist era and early years of capitalism of the nineties.  And while the idea of straight from the farm to the hands of consumers is a great concept, far too often they are not real farmers markets but rather ordinary fairs.
