The vegetable people have won the right to sell their vegetables over by the White House, near the Executive Mansion. A side of locally sourced context with this lede? So back in August Obama made some off-hand comment somewhere once about how much he wanted a farmers market. “A farmers market like a hot second away from where I live? Obviously I would not hate this,” he probably said. People who take these sorts of things quite seriously took this thing quite seriously, and have been stoked to set something up ever since. Sam Kass, Obama’s White House Assistant Chef Czar, attended some town hall about farm fresh eggs in order to argue that another farmers marker would be a fine addition to D.C.s farmers market scene. There was no known opposition to the idea. [The Caucus]
