Market rules connect both local farmers and cooks, whether in rural Ireland or downtown Los Angeles, and enable widespread distribution, whether through twelfth-century Mediterranean trade in dried pasta or the now global trade in fresh fish. No wonder people have worked so hard to save markets under threat - in Athens, in Dublin, in Nazareth - indeed, worldwide.
