Since it's a monopoly, the green market should impose quality standards (E.g. No roots from last November) and limits on markups vs wholesale.
I swear I’m not being argumentative today, but this is a fundamental misunderstanding of how Green market works. All farms are independent businesses; green market provides space but limited oversight. It’s also not a monopoly. There are numerous market sponsors throughout the boroughs and tri state area.
Fully get that, like the Harley Davidson at the Guggenheim. But the Met isn’t struggling to keep the doors open.
Narrator Voice: Not so Fast.
" Let’s talk a little bit about that financial picture you inherited when you arrived. I mean you had a debt that was approaching $40 million; your operating losses were in the vicinity of $10 million, and you made a commitment– and the board– to have a balanced budget by 2020, and that appears to be on track. Now I know this is not rocket science, but there is something to it. What were the steps, and what were the actions you took to right the ship?"

I must tell you, there is a website called Bar Stool sports... Its apparently very popular, like very popular.. I haven't seen it but, I have their pizza app.. It's essentially a tough talking Boston guy with a Southie Accent who is hell bent on eating at every pizza place in New York... He has a really tight rating system.. Like, 8 and above is excellent... He is pretty stingy with his score.. I went to one of the places recently he loved and it was just ok.. but,his interaction with people walking down the street and the owners and his camera guy are really fun.. I spent one night watching maybe 20 of them.. Anyway, someone else with an opinion, i find it entertaining. He really likes Sauce pizza.
If it's a southie accent it's cultivated. I've considered the show a guilty pleasure, but the dude's from the tony North Shore and is Jewish.

heaven forbid a family, successful in business for a century on razor thin margins, decides to see a better return on their investment while they can still enjoy it. i'm sure their raison d'etre for years was to not make money.
It has nothing to do with feeding rich people you can feed poor people with sustainable agriculture too. It also has nothing to do with the food being good. It is merely a sourcing mechanism.
There's not much point in sustainable agriculture if it's unaffordable.
we're at the wrong point of the affordability curve here. local, sustainable foods used to be affordable until agro-industry broke the systems that made them so. modern small scale farms are rebuilding regional systems from scratch- hence part of the expense. barbers argument, and mine, is that rebuilding these systems and desire will ultimately lower the cost of sustainable food.
lunch already isn't surprising since it's posited as an all day restuarant. whether they are ready for it or not, who knows. I will file my whole review early and say i had one canelle. and it was good. although the smallness made the carmel much more prevalent than the lush ineterior.
