Dot’s Reading Room: Farmers’ Markets Offer Fresh Food and Community Connections

One of my fond childhood memories is of going with my mother on a Saturday morning to the Raleigh, NC farmer’s market. I’m not sure whether we called it a “farmer’s market” at the time. It took place in a cavernous warehouse, always delightfully cool on a torrid Raleigh morning, and I especially delighted in the fish vendors’ stalls and their gleaming wares. On other days we shopped at the precursor of the supermarket, the local “Piggly Wiggly, a small neighborhood store with limited stock.” (I didn’t encounter a supermarket until my early teens.)

South Boston restaurant blames lazy handout-taking lardasses for its staffing shortages, not its own pay rates

Amrheins on West Broadway is blaming government handouts for how long it's taking its customers to get their food these days. Amrheins is slated to be reborn as a much smaller cafe-style eatery when its block is turned into a life-sciences research building. In 2019, the developers planning that building paid Amrheins owner Stephen Mulrey $16.5 million for the current building and parking lot, according to Suffolk County Registry of Deeds records.
