Farmers Market Shopping Tips
If you’re content with just being a customer at the farmers market instead of trying to sell produce from your urban garden, take these helpful tips with you next time you go:
- Get Chatty: Spend some time with the farmers who grow your food. They are happy to talk and want to answer your questions. Some even provide recipes for the ingredients they grow.
- Bring a Bag: Canvas bags are great for farmers markets. They help you bring home a dozen ears of corn plus that heavy watermelon without a struggle.
- Try Something New: A benefit of a farmers market is that they usually have something you won’t see at the grocery store. Expand your horizons and try a new food at each visit.
