Seen in a supermarket window in Brooklyn yesterday:
Wait, those are blueberries, not peaches! (Click on photo to enlarge.)
When I got home, just to make sure I wasn’t missing something, I Googled “Are blueberries also known as southern peaches?”
Every day I become more convinced that our lack of knowledge about what is in the food we eat, where it comes from and how it grows plays a huge role in the existence of our dysfunctional food system. If we were taught and learned some basic facts, I believe we would be less willing to accept most of what the food companies offer us.
And if a supermarket can’t get it right, how will our children?
