On the bus coming back from the farm tour, they played a video about the Monterey Market in Berkeley California. Seemed like a pretty lively establishment, with a simple philosophy: “to run a village-based business that supports both the local farmers as well as the local community. We sell tasty and healthy organic foods at great prices” and “to provide good fruits and vegetables in season”.

Pride themselves on direct and fair relationships with the producers, taking surplus when it’s available, selling good food at reasonable prices and being an integral part of the community!!

The movie is called “Natural Heroes” Eat at Bills: Life at the Monterey Market
