Going 'Green' at Atwater Village's Farmers Market

IT TURNS OUT shopping at the Sunday neighborhood farmers market might do something to prevent the destruction of glaciers. Or something. At least that's the impression I get from watching this "going green" report by ABC7 TV:
"It's the price of gas I think that has made people think a little bit more about improving their lifestyle and giving back to the earth," said Joyce Chan a shopper at the farmer's market in Atwater Village, [edit: actually, she's the market organizer] where shoppers can buy locally grown produce.
The Los Angeles news channel has not, to my knowledge, aired any follow-up report on what secret ingredients might be in the No-Name Hummus we bought at yesterday's farmers market. My report: Tasty!

Joyce isn't just a shopper -- she's the organizer of the Atwater market. She works for SEE-LA, the non-profit that runs our market, the big Hollywood and several others, and she's been running the Atwater one since its beginning a few years back.

Oops! Shame on ABC7 for not disclosing that their "shopper" was in fact the "organizer."
