dc.description.abstract The idea of authenticity is hard to define in terms of Ontario Farmer’s Markets. How-ever, consumers do not need confirmation of the ‘localness’ of farmer’s market food and products. Instead they put trust in the vendor to sell fresh, quality items. For most custom-ers, the sense of community and the belief that the food is fresh and local seem to be the most important. en_US
