    PITTSBURGH, June 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If you want to buy
 really fresh salad greens or perfectly ripe raspberries or a culinary
 surprise of the best sort, you want to find an old-fashioned market, like a
 farmers' market or a vintage market house with a variety of vendors inside.

     If you want to watch a crunchy, sweet and delicious celebration of such
 places across the U.S.A., you will want to see "To Market To Market To Buy
 A Fat Pig," premiering Wednesday, August 1, on most PBS stations at 8 p.m.
 (check local listings.)
     Produced by Rick Sebak of WQED Pittsburgh, "To Market To Market To Buy
 A Fat Pig" is the latest in a sporadic set of public television specials
 that identify and applaud some often overlooked aspects of American
     "This time we wanted to talk to buyers and sellers, foodies and
 farmers. We wanted to check out the scrumptious eccentricities of American
 markets," said Sebak. "We don't include some of the major markets that are
 celebrated regularly on cable networks. We tried to go instead to
 unexpected locations and less familiar food spots."
     "To Market To Market To Buy A Fat Pig" was made possible by the
 Corporation for Public Broadcasting and by the contributions to PBS
 stations from viewers across the United States.
