However, we do like to frequent them from time to time. It's great fun to see all the tables loaded with produce! In addition to delicious, locally grown, reasonably priced produce, Farmer's Market vendors often sell gorgeous cut flowers, honey, real maple syrup, meat, cheeses, baked goods, clothing, handmade soaps and jewelry. Throw in some yummy food vendors (love those egg rolls), a band playing and some of the best people watching around - you've got yourself a night (or a morning) out on the town!
The produce is generally cheaper than what you'll find at the grocery store. It is definitely fresher! Plus, you're supporting local farmers and craftsmen when you shop at Farmer's Markets. It's a good thing.
Farmer Ron and I swung by our local Market tonight to oogle at other people's veggies and got a great deal on plants for the garden. We bought 3 eggplant plants and 1 mint plant for a total of $2.00! It hadn't crossed my mind to look for actual plants at a Farmer's Market, but there they were and for a much better price than the local nursery.
Just wanted to throw this out there in case you need a few plants for your "farm!"
