Tips and Tricks 

  • ASK FARMERS QUESTIONS about how food is grown, how to prepare ingredients, and what's different about the varieties!

  • PLAN RECIPES based on seasonal ingredients. Thrift stores have great cookbook selections!

  • BRING YOUR OWN BAG and a cooler with freezer packs to keep any meats and dairy cool while you shop. Vendors do have bags available if you don't bring one.

  • ARRIVE EARLY at the market for the best selection. Take time to walk through and preview the entire market.

  • WHEN USING CASH keep in mind that farmers appreciate small bills and change.
