Shop the Farmers' Market Like a Pro!
Head to the market with an open, curious mind—try new tastes, and connect with the people who produce your food. Enjoy the process of discovery—it's as much about the experience as it is about what you buy.
First, Time it Right: Arrive early, before things get too picked over. High-demand items like berries, corn, and fresh peas go quickly. If you can, avoid peak market hours: It's tough to navigate the crowds, and produce has wilted by that time.
