Ah, point taken ! ;-)

I think the blog and its intent are great, especially for English speakers who come to Paris. However, I find it a little exaggerated to say that it's all dying. There are 82 farmers markets in the city, according to the City Hall's website (http://equipement.paris.fr/?tid=289), and as I walk throughout the city, I see farmers markets all the time.
Are there less than 10 years ago? Perhaps, I wasn't there, I cannot say. But I do not believe the situation to be as disastrous, and I feel Parisians are increasingly going local as well, right along with an overall gentrification of the city.
On top of going to their local markets, some Parisians are buying local online, whether directly from Rungis (mon-marche.fr), or going to a delivery point to pick it all up from the producers, called "La Ruche Qui Dit Oui!" http://www.laruchequiditoui.fr
