Tips and Tricks for Shopping Your Local Market

  • ASK QUESTIONS

    • Talk to the farmers; ask how food is grown, ways to prepare your produce, and what's different about the varieties.

  • PLAN RECIPES

    • Base your meals on seasonal ingredients and look up recipes before you shop.

  • BRING YOUR OWN BAG

    • Boxes, bags and coolers with freezer packs are some essentials to help make your shopping trip easier.

  • ARRIVE EARLY

    • If you want the best selection, come early and take time to walk through and preview the entire market.

  • WHEN USING CASH

    • As a convenience to the vendors, use small bills and exact change.
