Science at the Market: Locally Grown

On two weekends earlier this fall, physicists from the University of Illinois added science to the items being purveyed at a local farmers' market in Urbana. Patrons of the market, and especially children, were urged to stop by the physicists' booth, see some demos, and ask questions.
