Rick Caruso on The Grove, one of Los Angeles' most successful new shopping areas: "The main thing for us was, we didn't want to turn our back on the Farmer's Market, which most other developers wanted to do. We wanted to embrace it, and we wanted to look at it as an anchor." Farmer's Markets are threatening to corporate interests, particularly Big Agriculture. Once they break through into urban shopping areas, other aspects of corporate control may start to break down too. And people like them! (Courtesy Planetizen Newswire)
