I bought this book off Amazon as a Kindle, and it was worth every cent and then some.

It's one of those I vote: 'fast for a week and buy it'
I wanted to visit my farmer's market with fresh produce and (if the tomatoes and peppers don't sell) fresh home made salsa from last week's offerings... and it is WORTH IT!

Thank you John D. Ivanko and Lisa Kivirist!

I live in Oregon where you are tres uncool if you don't buy at least a third of your food from the plethora of farmers markets, and some of them still have affordable fees! I would love to know how to contribute to the trend *and* my pocketbook! Thanks!

Yes, I bought this book 8 March, and am one of the Amazon Reviewers. It is still worth every penny!

Welcome John, and again, thank you!

This year our farmer's market is gearing up to be a good one, and may open early. I hope to be there smiling at people over my goods. If you even think you want to get near a market to sell, buy this book.
