Market forces

"For the likes of the jam maker, Angela Morris, the developments feel "a little bit too corporate". She said: "I gave up my job as a physicist to make jams and chutneys for a living. I've found this a very wonderful, supportive community to belong to. I thought I'd left the days of backstabbing and aggressive behaviour behind. It seems that even jam has its politics."" (thanks Rania)

Well, it's called a "market" isn't it? Funny thing, Lebanon, as usual, brule les etapes. It took them 10 years to start fighting over ownership, development and exclusivity in UK farmer's markets. We got there in less than 4.
