Which is the best direction to orient my vegetable garden? Should the plant rows run North/South or East/West?

Thank you.

Conventional wisdom has the rows oriented from north to south to maximize the sun exposure, but sometimes the configuration of your garden or other considerations such as the dimensions of irrigation equipment can make it better to run them from east to west.
