Wed, 04/29/2009

May 1, 2009 marks the 123rd anniversary of a rally for the eight-hour day in Chicago's Haymarket Square that ended with a police riot that left over a dozen dead.

A new farmer’s market will open in Portland this weekend.  Portland is one of the nation’s leaders in farmer’s markets, with over a dozen weekly markets just within the city itself.
These markets allow local residents to buy their food from nearby farmers, and help small farms survive in an age of agribusiness.
Ann Forstafel is with the Portland Farmers Market, which oversees most of the markets in Portland.
