A Trip to the Farmer’s Market!

Will you be visiting a Farmer’s Market this weekend?  Here are some tips to help you make the most of your trip!

Tips for Navigating a Farmers Market

  • Prepare a shopping list, but be flexible.  Wait to see what looks best before making any final decisions.
  • If you are not familiar with the market, be prepared with cash, in case credit cards or checks are not accepted.
  • For best selection, arrive early before produce is picked over.
  • For a chance at lower prices, arrive late for possible deals on produce and other items the vendors do not want to bring home.
  • If you purchase meat or dairy, ask the vendor to hold it for you until you are ready to leave.  On warm days, it is best to keep a cooler in the car for your trip home.
  • Be careful not to over buy.  Produce is perishable and there is always another market next week!
  • Most importantly, enjoy the season’s bounty!
