Local, Organic Produce in Copiague on Saturday Mornings

IW:  The comptroller at my work says if she were in charge of the country everyone would be encouraged to have their own vegetable garden.  The farmer’s markets that have been springing up are a good start.  I was at the one in Copiague, NY which takes place on Saturday mornings until November.  Local residents bring vegetables to sell that they grew on their own property.  Many of them are organically grown.
