Farmers in northern Greece have joined forces with local residents to provide cheap produce to people whose family budgets have been slashed by the financial crisis, and also to help producers who say they are being squeezed by middlemen. Hundreds of families turned up Saturday in this northern Greek town to buy potatoes at massively reduced prices, sold directly by producers at cost price. (AP Photo/Nicolas Giakoumidis)
