How to Make the Most of a Visit to a Farm Market

Thanks to the popularity of televised cooking shows that feature farm fresh, locally grown food, consumers are getting more particular about what they serve on their dinner tables. This new found interest in seasonal fruits and vegetables has created a booming business for old-fashioned farmer's markets. Farmer's markets give local ranchers and produce vendors an opportunity to sell their harvest directly to consumers, making it a winning combination for everyone involved. But navigating the booths and stands can be confusing, especially for first timers. But it doesn't have to be that way. What follows are some tips for making the most of your visit to the farmers market.

  • Most farmer's markets feature a bigger selection of garden fresh fruits and vegetables than most shoppers have ever seen. To help narrow down your selections, have a few recipes in mind before you head out. That doesn't mean you should pass up items that aren't on your list but still look good, it just gives you a framework to build on.
  • Be certain that you head to the market with an open mind and be willing to try foods you might not normally like. Remember, the garden fresh corn sold at the farmer's market is a lot different from the corn sold in the grocery store. So you may find out that you like corn more than you previously thought.
  • Remember to bring plenty of cash with you to pay for your purchases. Most farms and ranches are small operations and credit card fees can really eat into their profits. So, even if they takes card, try paying them with cash; they'll really appreciate it.
