They may or may not have an epic ‘stache, or a shirt from a machine shop with a name patch that says “Joey,” and may or may not be sipping an espresso drink from a disposable cup.

The serious produce shoppers, according to the Post, would sooner just go to the store than deal with the crush.And the millennials, statistically, are more likely to go out to eat.My first instinct was to call bullshit on this idea.I have nothing but empathy and respect for farmers like Lester, but I also know a lot of young farmers. The festive yet wholesome atmosphere makes us feel good about our communities. A bag of salad mix, perhaps, and hope it doesn’t wilt before we skateboard home.We might bump into that person we’ve been meaning to call, and perhaps buy a bar of soap. But produce shopping is becoming an increasingly rare act, according to a recent Washington Post article.
“For some growers, farmers markets just aren’t what they used to be,” notes the headline.Zach Lester, a Virginia grower who sells at DC’s trendy Dupont Circle market told the Post he was down ,000 a year from a decade ago, when he did about 0,000 in sales.This decrease comes in spite of the fact that the market is more popular than ever.He didn’t blame the competition for his woes; he blamed the hipsters for sucking the oxygen out of the market.That’s his word, not mine, and it’s a slippery one to define.To be clear, by hipster I mean people who go to farmers market and don’t buy produce.
