Meet Your New Neighborhood Food Market 8.12.2010 Commondreams.org Views
by Jim Hightower

The signature phrase of America's booming good food movement has been expanded from "organic" to "local and sustainable."

Not so the owners Scholars pub in south-west Dublin has tried to beat the recession by introducing a novel service in its main lounge – a barber shop. But cuts of a different kind were on the minds of punters gathered inside the bar yesterday afternoon. As Ireland's finance minister Brian Lenihan took to his feet to announce the toughest budget in the Republic's history there were moans and groans from those enjoying an afternoon drink. Taking a day off from his organic food shop business in Dundrum, John Dunne was sat with his wife and their daughter, and their friend the Irish actor Jim Bartley who stars in the soap opera Fair City.
