Today I had an eye-opening chat with my friend Leila at her shop in Shoreditch about Polish food commerce. In the past two decades the nations’s agriculture has been transfered into the hands of large corporations, leaving relatively few small-scale farmers and food producers in the wake of this agrarian homogenization. I was fortunate to visit the Jadwigi z Łobzowa Market in northwestern Krakow last week, where my friend Aga and I saw some locally produced food. We visited a woman who makes cheese six days a week and sells at this market one day a week. We also found a gorgeous array of wild strawberries and blueberries at neighboring stalls and a small shop dedicated to freshly made juice.
