I can't wait until there are locally grown vegetables to buy around here
This is an awesome resource Find a farmers market by visiting www.localharvest.org or this USDA website, which lists all USDA-registered markets, and searching by state or zip.
Thank you, Thank you!
we grow a very large garden. I've been canningt and freezing for years
One of the things that always annoyed me at farmers market were the vultures that descended at the last hour wanting to decrease prices or give away produce while driving there 70k diesel trucks, that they left running so you could get the fumes and noise. I never reduced prices at the end and neither did other sellers, there wasn’t much left and what was we ate at home.
This article needs to be redone, too old. Our farmer’s markets are not cheaper, stuff brought in from other states, and selling goods not handmade and from other countries. Big change from the older days.
We started getting nearly all of our food at the farmers market when Covid struck. The markets are outside which is better for these times, our food is fresher, we are supporting small businesses and frequently the farmers are willing to set things aside for us. Love our farmers markets!
