The officials in this State [Massachusetts] believe in making a distinction between products that have been raised near by and those that have been brought a considerable distance for sale. Officials in Ohio, on the other hand, find no disadvantage in the selling, at roadside markets, of products brought in hundreds or even thousands of miles, provided no deception is practiced. They think that this type of roadside market has just as much economic justification for its existence as though the products offered were grown by the marketer himself.
