The potato revolution is spreading

Tue, 13th Mar 2012

Even on financial channel Bloomberg the 'potato revolution' gets a mention and is being described as 'The farmers fight back', plus a note that the revolution is spreading to Crete where the farmers are getting together to sell olive oil at well below supermarket prices. I must say that the other day I saw artichokes on the potato/orange lorry and presumably this could spread to all farm produce.

Interesting really - in the UK when buy direct from farms or at farmers markets, you usually pay more, not less - it's the price you pay for knowing the pedigree of your fruit and vegetables!
