"To Market To Market" (video review)
To Market To Market To Buy a Fat Pig
PBS Home Video
Travel across the U.S. with Rick Sebak as he tastes food, searches for a fat pig and has fun exploring the farmers’ markets of Santa Fe, New Mexico; Lancaster Market in Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland; Asheville, North Carolina; Decatur, Georgia; Santa Monica, California; Hilo, Hawaii and the West Side Market in Cleveland. Each market claims to be the best but what they all share in common is fresh food and a friendly, social environment. Yet at the same time each market has something different to offer, from Decatur market with its wealth of international foods and people to the market in Hilo with its abundant pineapples and coconuts. Sebak discovers how these unique markets have developed, their important role in their communities and the traditions they carry on through generations of farmers and market goers.
