That particular criticism relies on a certain ignorance as well. I mean, gee, WalMart might need to rely on large farms to supply its large stores??? Whodathunkit?

Hell, I mostly shop at an area grocery chain that tries very hard to source local organic produce, and even they admit that, espeically in the off seasons when there's not a lot a produce to go around, if you really want stuff from small local farms you have to buy directly from the farmers. The logistics of rounding up the necessary quantity of produce from a bazillion different small farms is just too daunting for the grocery stores, be they Whole Foods or WalMart. And small farmers can do fine selling to restaurants and directly to consumers--they usually get a better price that way, anyhow.
