Farmer’s Markets are a great way to get the freshest, healthiest produce, while also supporting your local farmer. They are also a great place to find various artisanal products such as candles, soaps and homemade objects. But Farmer’s Markets can be overwhelming for some so here are a few tips to help you out!
First of all, be sure to bring your own bags. It’s better for the environment but it’s also a good practical tip since may vendors do not provide bags.
Second, research the different market dates and times that works for you. Arriving at the beginning of the day will give you the best selection and arriving at the end of the day will give you the best deals. So try and find a couple places to get the most our of your visit. And remember, mid week markets are often less crowded and will save you time.
Lastly, bring an appetite! Farmer’s markets have lots of local restaurants that set up booths so what a fun way to try a bunch of cuisines at once. Bring your family or a friend and make a day of it!
