Farmers' Market

Interesting article: http://consumerist.com/2010/10/suss-out-fakers-at-farmers-markets.html

Another thing is that farmers' markets don't always mean organic. I was at a farmer's market once where I found out that every apple farmer used chemical pesticides. I guess I always just assumed that farmers' markets didn't...which, in retrospect, was a pretty dumb assumption. After all, farmers' markets don't automatically mean every farmer is organic. Which leads me to a question....given the choice between local, conventionally grown and non-local organic, what would be your pick? (Assume local organic isn't an option)
