Tips for Shopping a Farmers Market
1. Shop early in the day for the best produce and shop later in the day for the best deals.
2. Don’t be shy to ask the farmers and purveyors for their recommendations. They’re the best source for what’s most ripe, what’s in season and how to best use it at any given time, and they are usually more than happy to chat about their bounty or make recommendations based on your needs.
3. Challenge yourself to try a new vegetable or fruit variety every week. You’ll add variation to your meals and you might find something you love!
