Tips for Shopping at Farmers’ Markets

It’s like regular shopping, but fresher and with better stories. Here are some suggestions for getting the most out of the venture.

  1. Ask Questions

Some dealers buy wholesale and resell goods, which isn’t the same as getting from their own farm. Ask if they’ve grown it — and watch for produce that looks out of season as a warning sign.

  1. Know the Season

The most useful produce is in season. Check for any region in any season here to know what you should expect to see at the market.

  1. Plan Dinners

Select a few favorite dishes and make a list. Because market stock changes, be ready with alternative recipes and open to substitutions.
