I'd never wear one, but it's funny how they take the piss out of NZ (I assume that's intentional)

Quote: "was more wondering whether anyone thinks about the impact of buying california oranges, or chinese oranges, over nz ones. RC cola over phoenix, and stuff like that."

I didn't get oranges this week because they were from california-even at the otahuhu greengrocer!Forces you to eat seasonally which is better for you too. win win.

Just a note too, i was in trade aid the other day and saw a book-cannot remeber the title or author but it was a paper back about A5 size and had a sub title "my year trying to live ethically" or something like that-may be of interest?????

Does anyone else do farmer's Markets?
I really like the Dunedin one- I think most regions have them now- it means your fresh produce has come from a local source, is seasonal, and you are directly paying the grower. Heaps of organics, generally cheaper and better quality than the stupour market.

Taurnaga also has a good one at the primary school off one of the avenues
-eary mornings saturday are too often spent recovering though.

Farmers markets are the shit.. nothing quite like buying directly from teh grower... and as far as 2 dollar and cheap import stores go.. just boycott them for places like savemart and recycled clothing stores the shit was still made in china but at leats its second hand and not adding more crap to the pile so to speak.. theres some pretty good stuff there. i got a sweet ramones shirt in good nick for 5 bux..

farmers markets are choice bro. And taking a drive around the outer auckland rural suburbs, - warkworth, omaha, matakana, road side stalls with honesty boxes are the best.

And out west there are heaps, yee haa
