Farmer's markets in especially urbanised and developed regions are an excellent way to connect the rural and urban communities.

Here in Riga, Latvia, there is a Farmer's market that is an initiative of the local Slow Food chapter. It is a great mix of local products and superbly well prepared food. This is an excellent example of how rural and urban communities can come together and learn from eachother.

Oh, yes, that could be a problem: the wonderful smells and sights of great food. I have a tendency to overeating ;)
