Five Good Things About Farmers’ Markets

14 Oct

nom nom nom

I love farmers’ markets.  As much as I love the fall harvest, it is a bit bittersweet as fall is the precursor to a long winter.  (Winter farmers’ markets are fewer, shorter, and less delicious. although I’m glad that they are around.)

1.) One of my farmers’ markets features chef demonstrations, made-to-order snacks, and music.  It’s more than just a market. 

2.) It’s an opportunity to not only support local/small farmers, but also meet them and ask questions.

3.) In addition to produce, farmers’ markets are also a place to purchase dairy, eggs, and meat.  These products typically meet higher standards than those at the average grocery store.

4.) Samples.  Yum.

5.) Outside, stall-to-stall shopping.  A personal and hands-on experience.
