There’s nothing I love more than checking out local events, and farmers’ markets are some of my favorites. Where else can you pick up fresh fruits and vegetables, look through local artists’ work, sample amazing food, and hear live music all at once? It’s among the best forms of entertainment during the warm summer months.
One of the best thing about farmers’ markets is that they’re populated by local farmers, vendors, and artists, which means that not only are you scoring great deals on fresh foods, but you’re also doing your part to help your local economy. That said, shopping at farmers’ markets is nothing like shopping at a grocery store, and for the uninitiated it can be intimidating. Here’s what you need to know to have a great experience.
