It is the height of the butter protruding from the enamel container that determines its price. This butter was called "Marx pitter", not in honor of Karl Marx, whom no one in the platz had ever heard of, but to denote market butter bought only by those who treated the mitzvot lighly (as opposed to the strictly orthodox), or for little children. Those who were strict about matters of kashrut would never eat it, fearing it was treif. Under her arm the farmer’s wife would hold a hen or a duck; in her other hand a wicker basket holding ...
