Touring the Farmers Market

Touring  the Farmers Market

I haven’t always shopped the farmers market. Actually my family isn’t big on veggies so I don’t always need anything that you might find at a Farmers Market. However, I love to just go and look around. There’s so much more to a Farmer’s Market than shopping the produce.

The Farmer’s market in our area is open in the summer and early fall months. It’s outdoors and the vendors fill a big sheltered area with the sides wide open. The colors are amazing and every Saturday it’s usually packed with shoppers. I’m not an early morning person so I arrive late morning while everyone else has already been or are still shopping.

As you make your way into the line of merchants, you see people bartering over the prices, learning techniques on how to skillfully pick the ripest produce off the vine. You see the samples of honey, salsa of all types, and fruit preserves being tasted and swooned over. In the summer, it’s hot so going in the early morning to beat the heat is not a bad idea. The fall season offers a break from the heat, and shopping on a warm fall day is perfect!

Your senses will definitely be in use while touring the Farmer’s Market. Depending on the season, you’re treated to the smells of fresh fruit like cantaloupes, strawberries, and watermelon. There’s usually plenty of sampling to do at each booth. There are other tables that draw your attention with an array of gorgeous colors and aromas. In the fall you’ll see the beautiful colors of the bins and bins of pumpkins, squash, fall beans, potatoes, and onions.

There’s plenty of other products that I never expected to be at a Farmer’s market. I love the cheese curds, salsa and homemade chips, ice cream, honey, cookies, breads, and pies. There’s even vendors with homemade soaps, natural cosmetics, garden decorations, and handmade jewelry and accessories. There is another section of vendors that are selling crafts, homemade jewelry, pictures, artwork, etc.

I love going to the Farmer’s Market. I really should go more often because you never know what you’ll find. If you haven’t searched out your local Farmer’s Market yet, give it a try!

    You can use a state or private entity to obtain certification. Find one that fits your needs and price range. After reviewing your application, the certifying agency will conduct a farm inspection. Keep in mind that non-approved substances must not be used for 3 years prior to first “organic” harvest.

    Hello Dawn,

    Shopping at farmers market is a delight for many. We in India always shop here, as it is common unlike western countries. We buy the fresh vegetables as most of us love vegetarian food.

    Regards,
