I agree with the above in general but also wish to point out the value of having some OTF-type vendors and lower grade produce available for the many market patrons who cannot afford to buy local, organic or specialty items. I was chatting with a farmer and very long-term stall holder just last week who was making this point as well. I see many people at the market buying up the heavily discounted produce. My grocery store doesn't keep older or bruised produce around, so I go to the market to buy old bananas for banana bread.
