Don Gibbon, formerly of the Pittsburgh 7th Ward, contributed this on farmers' markets and buying local food:
"You may be interested in this excellent list of Farmer's Markets in Allegheny County, the best list I know of for our area, from Just Harvest. It also shows how low-income folks can use the markets with stamps and other forms of assistance and list buses to get to markets.
"The PA Association for Sustainable Agriculture, with which I am deeply involved, also lists farmers markets around the entire state. There's a free monthly newsletter on all this stuff!"
