Local growers will be able to keep selling their fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers' markets without State inspection if House Bill 23-36 continues to move through the Oregon Legislature. The Bill's designed to clarify rules related to food safety. Hood River Republican Mark Johnson opposes it; asking why farmers that produce a little shouldn't be required to follow the same rules as farmers who produce a lot. Supporters say the products on the list, including nuts, seeds and honey, do not pose much risk of causing food related illness and the growers are easy to find if there is a problem.
