There really is a farmers market right by the White House now, and it opened late last week! Take a look at Michelle Obama's great speech on gardening and food policy. Also in the news: the story of Stonyfield Yogurt's risky startup and a new website on food safety. • New White House Garden at DCist. An overview of the occasion. • Yay for Vegetables and Yay for Food Policy at Obama Foodorama — a transcript and analysis of Mrs. Obama's speech. • Is that food safe? at Detroit Free Press. Did you know that refrigerated rice can get as yucky as spoiled meat or cheese? (I did; the worst thing I ever smelled was a pot of rancid rice.) • Stonyfield's Bumpy Startup Story at Newsweek. A fascinating look at what it takes to build a new food company. Previous Morning News: Julie Powell, A Corn-Eating Cat, and a Steam Bag Lawsuit
