Do you have a local farmers market? Most towns do. It’s the best way to get fresh fruits, vegetables and more. Support your local farmers with a trip there, but keep in mind the following helpful tips.

Text

Get there early.

Go to the farmers market early for the best selection. Popular items tend to sell first.

Bring your own bags.

Bring some reusable bags to carry your purchases home.

Don’t let the crowds overwhelm you.

These markets can be very crowded. Go slow and take your time checking out each vendor’s produce.

Look around before making a purchase.

Prices and options can vary from farmer to farmer. Make sure you visit each vendor’s stand before making a purchase.

Talk to the farmers.

Try the samples, especially if there is something new. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask the farmers. They know the industry and their products best. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, ask the farmers where to find it.
