I can walk or bike there if I want. Parking's free in Scotch Plains. There's fresh Jersey seasonal produce. Nobody's handing me that shrink wrap like in the big box stores. The people are pleasant and honest about the produce. They give tips about what to expect in the coming weeks, and about ways to prepare the foods, especially items that are new to me. Often I run into long-lost friends, so we can spend a few minutes catching up. If it's local produce, it's fresher; it's not adding to the pollution from cross-country trucking; and it keeps open farmland productive in our overcrowded 'garden state.'
