They MADE it!

They did it.

They made it.

They beat "the system."

For those of you not following local food news in the east bay area, allow me to explain. The Smith family has owned and operated Windmill Farms Produce Market since the early seventies, offering customers local produce from the farm-rich tri-valley and central valley areas in a delightful open air market setting. This summer, Contra Costa Environmental Health Services issued a ultimatum: the Smiths either had to completely enclose their market and stop selling cut produce or they would be forced to close the business. The Smiths and their loyal customer base collected 9000 signatures in their support and successfully won their appeal in early October.
