Mother Jones: 4 Hopes for Obama's Farmers' Market

It looks as though President Obama is interested in starting a White House Farmers' Market. He says it could give Washington D.C. "more access to good, fresh food, but also is this enormous potential revenue-maker for local farmers in the area."

Mother Jones has come up with four things they'd like to see if the White House starts a market. Although they mention featuring "local, organic farmers," I would personally put a "producer-only market" (with a reasonable distance maximum, like 150 miles) at the very top of the list.
