Farmers Market Tips
If this is your first time visiting an open-air market, it can be a bit intimidating. There is a secret to making your way around the market and getting all the best deals. You should make a point to walk the entire market before deciding to buy anything. This can be difficult as the vendors are excited and knowledgeable about what they offer and are thus encouraged to make a sale. However, you want to be sure you are getting the best produce at the best prices.
If you have been to an open-air market before, then you know how exciting it is to look at all the new veggies and fruits. Take time each weekend to meet a new vendor. Ask them what makes their crops so special. Additionally, ask them for their favorite recipes. Chances are they have been in business for decades and can tell you everything from how to prepare a fresh meal tonight to how to can and savor the sweetness all year round.
On Saturday mornings, take the family along with you. It can be tough to get picky eaters, of any age, to try new things. However, when they have had the chance to pick out new items on their own, they may be more open and more excited to broaden their culinary palate.
