The Greenmarket is indeed a wondrous thing, but not without its dark underbelly.

I admit, it’s been a long time since I’ve had to take a math class, but look closely: if I’m not mistaken, what we’re all looking at here is LETTUCE SELLING AT $22 A POUND.

Can it be a coincidence that it’s being sold by Windfall Farms?

    Looks like some flagrant price-gouging to me.

    It seems fitting that "lettuce" is old slang for money. As in greenbacks, which you need a lot of to buy this lettuce.

    $22 for a lb. of money sounds like a better deal, as long as it's organic.
